Sir: Just imagine the oceans and airways jammed tight with solo navigators in the way our roads are. If motorists had to pay the full cost of their "freedom", including that of damage to health and the environment, they would be taxed out of existence.
I realise that as a white, middle-aged man I am almost an extinct species on the buses, but the crowded public transport I experience regularly shows me all too clearly that car ownership is by no means as universal as many claim. And many users of public transport choose to be so; I certainly would not have it otherwise.
