Technological developments have reduced the impact of the car on the environment and improved handling, however, cars have had an enormous impact on the way communities function and how we live our lives. In all of this the car is implicated in important ways in shaping who we are. The car is part of a network of mobility that has, along with other factors, fundamentally changed the way we live.
