It often (but not always) is the fastest mode, depending on levels of congestion, time of day and the available alternatives. Privacy. Automobiles suggest that you are at a higher level of society. People simply enjoy the sensation of driving. 5

Land Use Patterns Given the way our land-use patterns have developed, particularly in the United States, cars are virtually a necessity. There are areas where taking at least part of your trip without an automobile is virtually impossible. Land-use densities are so low that public transportation is not viable.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
