With travel trends constantly evolving, we are surrounded by debates about the future of transport, both globally and in the UK. This book explores the relationship between transport and the environment, considering the health implications of our commute to work and whether car sharing encourages green habits on and off the road. It also looks at current and future issues such as transport poverty, road safety, electric vehicles and driverless cars.
The information inside comes from a variety of sources, including newspapers, magazines, government reports and charity groups; providing different perspectives on challenging topics. At the end of the book is a selection of activities that will encourage interaction, literacy, critical thinking and independent research. Content is accessible and engaging, tailored primarily towards the 14 to 18 age group.
