Reply To: North America, Europe and the automobile


That's very true. Mass transit is cheap, efficient and plentiful for the most part over there. The United States was headed that way also, until the early car companies coralled the government's interest (and subsidy) away from trains. Also, the way most of Europe is 'spread thicker' encourages maximizing available space. You are either in the country or the city; not much suburban sprawl. So they never really developed a mass love affair with the car as an 'independence identity machine' like we have.
