You might be reading this blog thinking that there can’t be any cons of travelling by car. But there are people out there who have some complaints to make. We don’t need reminding of why we love to travel by car, but what about the cons? We compare people’s opinions, whether you agree with them or not …
- Flexibility: Travelling by car means you don’t have to adhere to train or bus timetables and you can take the route you want to take. An added bonus if you arrive to your destination quicker as you don’t have to keep stopping to let people hop in.
- You can listen to your music as loud as you want without annoying other passengers on the tube/train/bus/plane/tractor
- Storage: How annoying is it when you have to pack lightly because you’re getting the train? There’s no limit to packing for a car journey. Want to bring your food processer? Great, chuck it in.
- Timing: We’ll say it again. Public transport is awful at sticking to times. Take control of your own journey.
- High costs: Particularly if you like to drive fast and uneconomically. Maybe that £4 bus ticket isn’t so shabby looking…
- Environmental impact: The more people driving cars, the more people on the road and the more emissions made. Do the maths.
- Traffic Jams: A delay of an hour. Another broken down car on the M3 by any chance?
- Parking: We’ve talked about the banes of parking on our blogs before. You know the deal.
Pros, cons, opinions, complaints: We still love a life behind the wheel, how about you?
