  Morning Queues and Parking Problems. On the Broken Promises of the Automobile
 
 
Titel: Morning Queues and Parking Problems. On the Broken Promises of the Automobile
Auteur: Hagman, Olle
Verschenen in: Mobilities
Paginering: Jaargang 1 (2006) nr. 1 pagina's 63-74
Jaar: 2006-03-01
Inhoud: The car promises speed and individual freedom of movement, to go wherever one wants whenever one wants. These promises are materialized in car technology and culturally distributed through car marketing. In everyday life, however, the majority of car travelers are stuck in queues moving slowly through big cities. The morning queue seems to be an accepted aspect of car travelling and everyday commuters often adjust their habits to a life in the queue. They seem to get more upset when their freedom to park is restricted, hating parking meters and parking officers that are, after all, inventions intended to increase the flow. This article takes these two phenomena as the point of departure for a discussion of the freedom of mobility offered in practice by the automobile in relation to the freedom of mobility it promises. It concludes that “we have never been auto-mobile”.
