The line graph compares the percentage of car ownership in Britain over a period of 36 years starting from 1971. It is clear that one car ownership accounted for the highest percentage over the period shown. By contrast, the percentages of three or more car ownership occupied the lowest percentages in each year.
In 1971, the percentages of no car and one car ownership were over 40 %. Two cars ownership held just 8 % of overall. Three or more car ownership occupied a negligible amount of car ownership. Five year later, one car ownerships overtook the no car ownership and become the highest percentages in car ownership.
Between 1971 and 2007, the percentages of no car ownership dropped dramatically to 25 %. By the contrast, the figure for percentages of two car ownership rose significantly to 25 %. The percentages of one car ownership remained relatively stable, at between 44 – 45 % for the whole 36-years period, but the percentages of three or more cars saw only a small rise to approximately 7 % by 2007.
