The observation is made that the smaller the community, the more essential is the automobile. An attempt must be made to tax and/or regulate the automobile where the negative impacts are the greatest, i.e., in cities and suburban regions where alternatives are or can be made readily available. Also urban growth could be oriented in a manner that will reduce the need for so many trips as well as trip length. The goal of the automobile industry should be to provide a medium size, energy efficient, non-polluting automobile.
