What do you have against cars?
All modes of transport have their place once we move more toward lower emission options, including cars. TOP’s policy is about providing other options.
Cars are particularly well suited to rural areas. The problem is that we are far too reliant on them in cities due to urban sprawl and lack of infrastructure for alternative options, such as good public transport and cycling networks. Too many people in cars causes congestion and is a significant contributor to our carbon emissions. We want to offer more and better options that will make Kiwis and our cities healthier.
