The article examines the purpose of transport policy and its consideration of the quality of life. It is argued that more attention should be directed towards analyzing the broader consequences of changes in transport policy and the nature of forces regulating them. A number of anomalies between present-day transport policy and practise are discussed covering public transport, car production, road construction, energy conservation and road safety. It is suggested that the parameters within which transport objectives are planned should be broadened and objectives set within the wider goals of society. /TRRL/
