The total of land transport miles travelled in the UK in 2010 was around 500 million, double that of 1970. Greenhouse gas emissions from domestic transport account for 25% of the UK total. The car accounted for 64% of land-based trips and 79% of distance travelled in 2011, and the number of cars has increased by one third since the mid-1990s. The very future of personal mobility must now be examined and challenged.
