Reducing car useWhat do people who live and drive in cities and towns think?
Policy decisions that help to reduce car use in cities and towns are likely to be controversial and divide public opinion. It is therefore essential that we better understand people who live and drive in cities and towns and better work with them towards solutions that are more publicly acceptable and fair
