Previous studies have shown that structural conditions - such as economy, time, distance, accessibility, parking opportunities and place of residence - are important for car use. In this study, we have investigated whether values, attitudes, activities / lifestyles and experiences also have an impact on whether one chooses a car or other means of transport in everyday life. Results from analyzes based on a nationwide survey suggest that for many the car is not just a result of "structural conditions" - ie that you have no choice but to use a car - but that it is also pertain to one's own choices and preferences.
