Club news: ADAC launches policy position on the benefits of passenger car travel in Europe


Publication date: 03 June 2015


ADAC commissioned a study on the benefits of passenger car travel in Europe (EU 28). According to the study, car mobility generates a better quality of life and Europe benefits immensely from passenger car travel. For many Europeans, ownership of a car is the only means for social participation and the chance to find employment.

 

Following the results of the study, ADAC concluded that:

  • Passenger car travel is an essential pillar of society and economy within the European Union.

  • Increasing mobility costs correlate with decreasing wealth. In order to avoid welfare loss, the major economic and social impact of passenger cars must be taken into account when considering regulatory and fiscal measures.

  • The latter should increasingly focus on fuel-efficient, eco-friendly vehicles so as to avoid negative effects.

  • Future generations will also benefit from sound and safe infrastructure.

  • There is a need for a connected, intelligent European transport policy.
