It is about the rise of the antisocial bastards who believe they should be allowed to do what they want, whenever they want, regardless of the consequences... When you drive, society becomes an obstacle. Pedestrians, bicycles, traffic calming, speed limits, the law: all become a nuisance to be wished away. The more you drive, the more bloody-minded and individualistic you become. The car is slowly turning us, like the Americans and the Australians, into a nation that recognises only the freedom to act, and not the freedom from the consequences of other people's actions.
Monbiot needs to take the bus, and leave the driving to those who are more capable.
