A new survey has revealed that a third of East Anglian households consider cars as redundant, and almost half don't even have access to a vehicle.
Increasing use of public transport and lift sharing has resulted in the region's drivers steering away from car ownership.
The survey revealed almost half of households in the East are without access to a car, and 32% feel owning one is unnecessary.
Of those people opposed to car ownership, 74% indicated public transport was the best way to get around.
Cost is a key factor involved in the declining use of cars, and in particular the price of fuel, with a quarter stating the price of petrol is two high.
