“Cars enslave us rather than liberate us.” In the first place, one must work much harder in order to afford a car. They are not only expensive to buy, but cost a lot to run, too. The gas price gets higher and higher, not to mention how much it costs to fix the damages if you break it. So, one has to work more hours if he wants to have a car and still be able to live a decent life. Another argument against cars is that people who own them are worried about their cars being stolen or damaged. In order to cope with this worry, they have to install expensive alarm systems and, to make matters worse, car-owners have to avoid areas of the city where cars get broken into or stolen. An additional disadvantage of the cars is that the quality of life in our cities is made worse because of them. The toxic gases that cars eliminate pollute the air we breathe and this seems to threaten our lives everyday. Also, there are many drivers that get angry daily because of the traffic jams. On the other hand, the most important advantage of the cars is that they enable us to go to places and do things that we couldn’t otherwise. To be exact, you can set off to any place you want no matter what time of the day and if there is any public transport to there. Another advantage of cars is that they are very helpful in carrying things from one place to another. For instance, what would the pizza delivery boy do without a car? All in all, I think that, in spite of all their disadvantages we will still use cars many years from now on. Otherwise, can you imagine the world without them?
