Car (n.) The best argument against economic development.

The car has of course ruined the old cities of Europe and allowed other regions to construct cities that look more like industrial vomit than human habitations. One of the joys of the post-carbon age will be the vanishing of the car from our old streets, as they once more become connectors, and not dividers. Cars are admired by many governments because they are a very effective way of converting hydrocarbons into tax revenues, despite their effects on health and quality of life.
