Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Cars are certainly obnoxious, but no one who goes out for the night comes home stinking of diesel fumes in the way they would have before smoking was banned in pubs and clubs.

The damage done by cars is different and more subtle.

It's probably greater in the longer term - but I don't think anyone on ET is a fan of Jeremy Clarkson and SUVs.

My question is: are they drivers?

Some are, some aren't.

Some of those are aren't necessarily drivers through choice.

I avoided having a car for fifteen years until it became an unavoidable necessity. If it stops being an unavoidable necessity I won't think twice about getting rid of it.
