Cars have been in use since the year 1870. Since then their number on the roads has increased many times over. They also went through a lot of changes, both on the outside as well as on the inside. That’s why I definitely agree with this statement, and there are many reasons why. Firstly I firmly believe that people must work much harder in order to afford a car. Because they are not only expensive to buy, but also cost a lot to run. Nowadays the gas price gets higher and higher and also not to mention how much it costs to fix the damages if you break your car. That’s why I am inclined to believe that one has to work more hours if he wants to have a car and still be able to live a decent life. Secondly, I think that people who own cars are worried about them, especially when 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. Thirdly, I am convinced that 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 every day. On the other hand, there are a lot of advantages of the cars. For example, 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 in my view that cars are very helpful in carrying things from one place to another. For instance, what would the pizza delivery boy do without a car? To conclude, it is clear that cars seem to have made our live easier and more convenient. And I feel that, in spite of all their disadvantages people will still use cars many years from now on. Otherwise, can you imagine the world without cars? But nevertheless in my opinion more cars give us much more problems than they solve and enslave us...
