basically eliminating personal cars would mean we can fit like 20% more buildings in the same areas in our cities, meaning people wont need to transport themselves as much, can live closer to work, more businesses can operate in the same areas, we can create more green areas too which improves public health and happiness. there are huge economic benefits. much larger than the benefits of you having a car instead of taking a bus, shuttlebus, tram, metro, train or whatever else to work. so in my view its the duty of the government to correct people like you. you are mistaken and need to be educated.
cars are really only required for people who have to drive long distances to varying locations to work on location, like pipeline inspectors or first responders to accidents. and of course for vacations its useful. but day to day work commutes? its a real waste to use a car for that. its a real waste too, if the govt doesnt provide adequate public transport infrastructure, such that people can save time by going to work by car even if they are stuck in traffic for 30+ minutes. just as the Netherlands, we lose millions of potential profit every day because of this issue.
