Private car dependence is widely recognised as problematic. While we have the tools, technologies and trends to promote more sustainable ways of travelling, our cities and routines remain defined by the car. To challenge this status quo, we must understand the complexities of car use. This positioning piece provides a research agenda to challenge one particularly complex expression of private car use in cities: the way we travel as families. Targeting two simple interventions in practice, the paper prescribes an evidence base for effective policy change to lessen the negative impacts of private car use.
