Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? In twenty years there will be fewer cars in use than there are today. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Although people practice cars to get a positive outcome, the negative consequences of moving by car prevail the advantages. From my point of view, in the near future people will modify their vehicles and find alternative choices. I predict this change because people want to save their precious time by evading traffic jams, as well as save money by using public transport. Besides, we have air and noise pollution due to the increasing number of cars. First of all, in our modern life, we need to save pace and it makes no sense to waste time being stuck in traffic jams. As a matter of fact, people have started to look for other means of transportation. For example, during my student years, I walked a part of the way to university because the roads were terribly crowded on that occasion. Otherwise, I would miss the class and some parts of important lessons. Thus, other means of transportation replace cars and assist people to commute much easier. Moreover, public transport costs cheaper than private cars. Meanwhile, people spend a lot of money on car fuel and for uninterrupted work of cars.To illustrate this idea, handling all these can turn out to be quite costly requiring more than 50% of our monthly expenses. In contrast, public transport is quite affordable for all the spectrum of society and, therefore, can ease the burden on our budget. Hence, people opt for using cheaper means of transportation in order to have some savings. Last but not least, the widespread operation of cars generates certain environmental hassles, such as air and noise pollution. It goes without saying that these consequences diversely affect not only people’s life and health but can also make a devastating impact on flora and fauna. As a result, diseases and death rates have increased recently. As well, many species of wildlife are on the edge of becoming extinct. In other words, air and noise pollution will force people to reduce the use of cars. To summarize, we can come to the conclusion that in twenty years we will definitely exploit fewer cars than it is today to save both time and money and to protect the environment.
