A personal view is presented by the author who believes that car-ownership can continue to grow despite arguments that have been put forward based on the effects of the energy crisis. Data is given on the number of cars licensed and scrapped and changes in size, depreciation rate and price. The author concludes that the resilience of the car market means that growth is inevitable but asks whether it should be permitted. It is suggested that increase in car-ownership and usage should be developed in the best manner for society as a whole, increasing mobility and amenity for all sections of the community and not penalising those who have to rely on public transport. /TRRL/
