Some you may from work from home, but some you can’t. Like farmers, you can’t bring your farm into your house. :roll:

Also police enforcements, chefs, people in entertainment, and so on.

Great I reckon. Maybe we will all get off our bums and get back to what it was like in the 60's when you were lucky if you had one car in a family (and usually dad used it for work). In addition think about the reduction of greenhouse gases, oil reserves etc etc.. Bring back the horses i reckon....... :) :lol:

I remember reading an article about old transportations, and it said that horses were as much messy and polluted as cars. Types of bicylces and walking are the only best transportations of all time 8) .

I think cars won't disappear even after 60 years as you said ..
May be it can be but not in all countries ,, May be in big countries only but small countries will continue using these transports like us here in the Kingdom of Bahrain as it is only a point on the map .. for example you will take only few minutes to move from city or village to another using a car .. so why to use aeroplanes there ?! I think there is no need ..

That's true. For years now people in some countries still use camels as a part of transportations. It's more about convenience than going-with-time thing.

No no small countries aren't invested so much to expensive highways, they can develop new things faster.

In some societies, they use camels over vehicle transportations because of many other factors. The main thing is labor. One person could control several camels that carry a lot of heavy things on their backs at the same time, but it needs more than one person to control several vehicles. Thus, it's cheaper to use camel over vehicles. Moreover, the money to pay for gas, maintenance the vehicles when they're broken down, and so forth is more expensive than owning camels. And camels are good in bad condition of the desert while vehicles sometime are quite hard to control.
In Iran, there's a society that doesn't allow the government to build the road for them although they've been asked. The road is really dangerous, but they said they like challenges, and being on that dangerous road is a part of their challenges. It makes them feel alive. Thus, the government has to leave them alone.

I'd like we'll use some teletransporters or may be any other transport for quickly movement :lol: . I hate today's transport! There are too many cars on the streets and it takes too long time for me to reach any place I need. :cry: I'd like this situation will be changing by teleportation.

I think cars won't disappear. In the future people will still use cars to travel. But cars won't run on the ground anymore, they 'll fly in the sky.

Like that Artificial Intelligence movie? Or Minority Report? Cars run on buildings in Minority Report. It was cool!

I don´t think cars will not be used 60 years from now... Our society was dominated by automobile ideology. If you look at the history, the 20 th century represented the biggest ascent of auto industries. Probably, the great ecomomical power of these corporations will not permit a significant change of this situation. I think the companies will try to innovate doing some small cars with different energetical resources maybe... There´s a possibility, but others scenes can be possible so... A important technological innovation will be able to change many things, but probably, big companies will always try to get the best of situation!

In 60 years when oil and gas run over, people will return to ancient times. Horses and mules will substitute luxury cars. Perhaps, big corporations such are GM, Mercedes-Benz, etc. in order to not lose buyers will switch from producing cars to cultivation luxury horse breeds. :-)

In 60 years, cars will be history, won't they? Maybe yes. There will be a kind of balloon like umbrella replace to cars. Everybody will use that if they want to go out. Howerver, people will not need to move from here to somewhere. They will stay at home and do everything they want. Shopping? Just press some key on computer, and the system at supermarket will accept and control the autoumbrellar to bring things to given address. For another services, they will be the same. Woh, it is so interesting :lol: .

I do not think so
I think the racing more dangerous
Moreover,riding a bicycle can save energy and reduce carbon.

Do not you think? :-o
