Abstract:Mobility has an important societal function. It can be seen as the motor of our society. However, mobility and its growth have external effects on welfare as well, such as, depletion of natural resources, air pollution, noise and smell nuisance, traffic un-safety, and congestion. The car has both positive and negative effects on mobility and therefore an important influence on welfare. This study strives to gain an insight into the possibilities to improve positive effects and at the same time minimise negative effects of car mobility. In order to have a reference, the concept of ‘sustainable development’ is applied to mobility.
