Why do we need a car? (+/-)
Everybody knows that cars are very important in our life. We can’t imagine how people could live without this invention many years ago. A lot of families in all countries have their own cars nowadays, they help us in daily life. Our life has become easier since the end of last century, when people made their first car.
There are many advantages of having a car. Firstly we may move quickly from one place to another. It means that, if we have a car, we can go to the office or to school more easily than by bus, train or tramway - we don’t have to spend several minutes in a crowd and be exposed to delay or robbery . Equally important thing is that we can put heavy luggage in the boot and we don’t have to carry it. We can also have touring holidays or trips when we want. Another thing is that when you’re driving a car, you can get a fascinating experience, you may drive fast, feel free and... relax. You can also give somebody a lift or pick up girls/boys if you have a good car.
But having a car has also disadvantages. First of all, if you want have a car you have to pay much money for petrol and services. In the last several years there has been very popular way to limit our expenses - you may supply your car with engine on ground gas. Everybody knows that cars emit fumes and pollute the atmosphere. In big cities there is a problem with too many cars. Sometimes you may go to the office by car longer than by bus or metro - you stay in traffic jams, you may have a problem with finding a parking space. Moreover there is huge smog and we feel bad and we are nervous. When we go by car we can also be afraid about our health or life - there are many crashes on the roads and we should be very careful and sensible. The next disadvantage is that if we use a car in our daily life, we become lazy and we don’t want to take any exercises like walking or running. We become fatter and weaker.
In spite of the fact that there are so many disadvantages of having a car we realize, that our life would be much harder if we didn’t have a car. If we have money, if we drive carefully and always remember, that on the road we should also be polite, if we profit from cars reasonably - we can enjoy driving for many years.
