The Rise of Cars
Cars have given us freedom. We can go wherever we want to go, ______________________ (EVER) we want to go. They have also brought us _______________________ (DEPEND). We don’t have to make compromises or take into _______________________ (CONSIDER) where other people want to travel. Cars provide us with a personalised transport _______________________ (SOLVE) that’s always available. But they have also changed the world we live in _______________________ (DRAMATIC).

If you had to consider the impact of cars on your town, you would probably think of traffic jams and the _______________________ (DIFFICULT) of getting around in the rush hour. Or maybe you would think about _______________________ (POLLUTE) and how _______________________ (POISON) fumes destroy buildings and roads. But you might not think about any of these things at all.

People buy more and more cars while roads keep getting _______________________ (WIDE) to cope with the _______________________ (INCREASE) amount of traffic. Cars are everywhere. They invade _______________________ (FORMER) green spaces: lawns, flowerbeds or trees that used to line the roads. _______________________ (PAVE) and streets become thin strips along the front of buildings, further narrowed by _______________________ (PARK) cars that invade the last remaining inches of pedestrian space.

We all enjoy the facilities that shopping malls and _______________________ (ENTERTAIN) complexes bring us, because we can use our cars to get there. They are efficient, _______________________ (CONVIENIENCE) and fast. At the same time we are _______________________ (SAD) by the _______________________ (LOSE) of our local grocery stores, as well as beautiful houses and community centres. What we must realise is that these changes go hand in hand, and we are to blame

Preferring our _______________________ (FREE) to sharing transport with others, we get into our cars to get to our workplaces, do our shopping, or to go out to the theatre. Many people would even drive to go for a walk in the fields. And wherever we drive, we have to park too. Parking spaces are huge areas of land used up by empty cars _______________________ (WAIT) for hours for their passengers to return. What used to be a vast _______________________ (GRASS) meadow now becomes a small muddy field, crisscrossed by tire tracks of several vehicles. Cars are changing the _______________________ (SCAPE). It will never be like it used to be again.
