Travel is glorious in any form. The food, sights, arts, culture, languages,
and new friends just make it such an enjoyable experience. Some people
prefer travelling by car, while others prefer trains or planes. There's no
doubt that travelling by car has both many advantages, and a lot of
Some of the advantages of
travelling by car:
First of all, there is the flexibility -
you can travel any time, anywhere.
You are on your own schedule, and
can make unexpected stops. See a
little cafe by the side of the road?
Stop and while away the afternoon,
talking with the owner.
Secondly, we can talk about food -
although train fare can be good, and
jumping off at a stop to grab
something from a train station, I
prefer more packing picnics to enjoy
later near the ocean, or discovering
small local restaurants that aren't in
Thirdly, there is the speed, we can move
quickly from one place to another. We
don't have to waste our time and wait for a
bus. If we want to go to the hospital we do
not need to go to the bus station and wait.
It is very important, because we can travel
wherever and whenever we want.
Moreover, cars are always available and
we can go by car everywhere. Sometimes
in small villages bus travels very rarely.
People have to wait for a long time to go
to the town. Availability is the second
advantage of travelling by car.
Easy Transportation of Goods
If you are travelling with goods, perhaps
your shopping, or suitcase if you are going
on a holiday it is easier to transport these
in your car rather than using public
transport which is not secure and is short
of storage space.
On the other hand, there are also
The high levels of car users on the road,
especially during rush hour can lead to
lots of congestion, traffic jams and a
lack of parking spaces. These factors
will all increase your journey time and
may lead to high parking charges.
Using a car is also very expensive. If
you have a car you have to pay much
money for petrol and services. Petrol
prices are very high. In my opinion
people should use gas more than petrol
because gas is better for the
Furthermore, travelling by car is not very comfortable for a driver. He
cannot relax, he has to be careful all the time. Vehicles are forced to stay in
traffic jams, it is also very uncomfortable. Passengers can sleep or doing
what thay want. When driver is very tired, he can be as dangerous on the
road as drunk driver.
Those who are concerned about the environment may feel that lots of
journeys by car along routes where public transport is available is costing
the environment unnecessarily. You can help this by walking for short
distances when available, using an environmentally friendly car and sharing
your car with others travelling to the same place as an alternative to public
When using public transport such as
a train or bus you do not need to
worry about any parking, there are
no traffic jams on the railways and
bus lanes make it easier for buses to
get through busy city centres.
Travelling by car is dangerous.
There are many crashes on the roads
and we should be very careful and
sensible. There are many people,
who want to drive after alcohol, they
cause a lot of accidents. In my
opinion they are irresponsible and
immature and people who drink and
drive should lose their driving
licence for life.
In conclusion, the car has been the most popular method of transport for
Like the other ways of traveling, it has some disadvantages, but it is also a
good option for the people who prefer the flexibility, speed and more family
