In twenty years there will be fewer cars in use than there are today.
Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
With the development of science and technology as well as the implementation of the policy about vehicle, some people believe that in the 20 years, fewer cars will be in use than they are today. As far as I am concerned, I cannot agree with this statement for the following reasons.
First of all, the population in the 20 years will still increase, which means that car market still has huge potential. Since the cost of cars becomes more and more cheap and people live further from their work places than before, people who would like to buy cars gradually rise. Take China as an example, China has the largest market of car and with the progress of society, more people can afford cars so there is an increasing trend of car running in the roads. Unlessthe population in the world is going to decrease in the next 20 years, more cars will be produced in the future.
However, under the drive of environmental protection from government and the rise of the price of oil, it is possible that we can see fewer cars driven in the roads. The car is not the only choice for travelling. In fact, many people would like to use publict traffic rather than private cars. They think that in this way, they can not only do some good to environment but also save money.
But this kind of people cannot stop the growing trend of population, the world still see more cars produced.
To sum up, I think that there will be more cars in the future, but the growing speed will be slow down. The publlic transportation will be convenient for people and more people will choose to use it. The deterioration of environment will also drive human being to use less vehicle.
