UK Inches Closer To Eliminating Private Car Ownership

UK Inches Closer To Eliminating Private Car Ownership. By Steven Symes.

UK Government Transport Minister Trudy Harrison recently … said it was necessary to ditch the “20th-century thinking centred around private vehicle ownership and towards greater flexibility, with personal choice and low carbon shared transport.” That’s right, she said the quiet part loud and showed the hand of a growing number of government officials.

Harrison went on to praise not only public transportation but also bike share services, e-scooters, and ride sharing platforms. All of these are supposed to tune down how much carbon the UK is emitting into the atmosphere. …

300 residents in Coventry recently expressed interest in giving up their personal cars. The tradeoff from the government reportedly would be a mobility credit worth up to £3,000. This mobility credit program has been going since March of this year, with 73 cars turned in and crushed. No, this isn’t a joke, but I wish it were.

Understandably, many Brits are upset about this. Some have asked if they should start riding their horse instead, all the in the name of “progress.” Others are tying this statement by Harrison with the looming government ban of internal combustion engines for cars by 2030. After all, EVs aren’t exactly cheap, so what better way to force people onto public transportation than by pricing them out of the vehicle market? …

People in the UK are starting to wake up to the very real possibility they would be completely dependent on the government to be driven anywhere.

The left are taking advantage of bad climate modeling, which is stoutly defended by government climate scientists whose funding all comes from leftist bureaucracies. Did  you believe them when they said we were overheating the planet?
