Abstract

The increasing degree of worldwide motorization represents an important example of current globalization. Over the last two decades, countries such as China have been shaped extensively by the motor car. Modernization through motorization thus appears quite similar to the way it happened earlier in the industrialized world. However, this process is running in a significantly faster pace, and it exceeds a high pressure on infrastructure provision, traffic safety or the environment. Whereas the rising demand for mobility in China is undisputed, there is a need for improving traditional transport modes, and also for making car traffic more sustainable. The attractiveness of the car also demonstrates a socio-cultural dimension that is still poorly understood. - (IfL)
