The car is rightly considered one of the greatest inventions of mankind. From its early start it was a sign of technological progress that throughout the years drastically transformed itself but also our way of life. Although the car as an object has been radically revamped through the years, the whole notion of motor transportation remains stable. The car actually means freedom. As Professor Dr. Cotten Seiler points out “Cars have, from the very beginning, represented more than just transportation, cars have historically represented the freedom to go places, to make choices and to pursue many paths. Every driver has the opportunity to be mobile and unrestricted”. In addition car means practicality since actually it shortens distance to job, to the super market, to social visits, to the doctor. The car is one of the most important pillars of our social culture. However do new/modern cars offer freedom to every citizen?
