effecienty public transport may reduce the amount we drive our cars, but in a emergency - say taking pregnant wife to hospital, taking an older relative to hospital the public transport becomes quite out of the question and so vehicles would always be bought and parking always required, though the usage can be brought down with more and more persons using public transport for regular commuting.

Also better for health

More than the hand-painted ones, the ubiquitous sign boards offered free of cost by commercial firms/stores are the ones that are making their presence these days with the 'NO PARKING' sign occupying 10% of the sign board and the rest doing marketing for the firm that supplied it.

So, are you saying that one buys a car only under circumstances absolutely necessary ?

If the public transport is good, why bother having a car of your own. Rent one when there is a need. This might work more for the young and mobile and if your living in a different country. I definitely need a car in my present situation. But parking is definitely a problem, I park my car in my parents place as the street I live on is very tiny.
