The United States has more cars than any other country in the world, at 300 million units. Young teens start dreaming of their first cars early, and adults fondly remember their first cars. This volume provides an extensive survey of the impact of cars on our world. How have they impacted the American way of life? How can driving be made safer? What will the future car industry look like? Can the U.S. possibly keep up with consumption and meet future transportation needs? These questions are answered for readers from more than one intelligent viewpoint, allowing them to think critically about what they're learning. Infographics, illustrations, charts, graphs, and sidebars support the essays.
