In Austria only 18 percent of the population can imagine giving up their car. 41 percent even categorically reject the idea.
Only a minority of 18 percent in Austria can get used to the idea of doing without their car entirely and using only public transport. This is shown by a survey carried out by the opinion research institute Unique Research on behalf of the magazine “Profil”. Nine percent can “definitely” imagine doing without a car, nine percent “probably”. Another 14 percent of the respondents stated that they already do not own a car.
Cars are also popular in cities
For the majority of Austrians, however, a life without a car is not an option: 23 percent say they could “hardly” imagine it, 41 percent categorically reject the idea. The group of car enthusiasts is smallest in urban areas. But even the cities say 57 percent of the probability that they would be more likely or not at all to imagine doing without a car.
