Transport

 

Kingsdown’s streets, as in most cities, are choked by parked cars and polluted by traffic. But cars are still a necessary part of our lives until other solutions have been found. We can all try to minimize the use of our cars but there are other possibilities to reduce our reliance on them or the fossil fuels they use.
