This book presents the controversial view that, for the vast majority of Americans, the automobile is not the problem, but the solution to transportation needs. The book offers suggestions and guidelines for politically realistic initiatives that preserve the benefits of the automobile while building public support for policies that will reduce its negative effects on energy use and the environment.
