Examines the consequences of our car-based transport system for social policy. The complexity of the relationship between transport and society together with debates about social inequality produced by the transport system are reviewed along with consideration of social exclusion and transport disadvantage. Adopting a lifecourse approach the book demonstrates the impact of car dependence on children, adults, disabled people and older people showing the ways in which transport and mobility policy have changed perceptions of freedom, risk and safety.
