Towards Sustainable Road Transport first describes the evolution of vehicle designs and propulsion technologies over the past two centuries, before looking forward to possible new forms of energy to substitute for petroleum.

The book also discusses the political and socio-economic drivers for change, investigates barriers to their broad. In particular, it is now clear that current trends in transport activity volume and growth pose a real threat to sustainable development. The Vancouver International Conference "Towards Sustainable Transportation" addressed this concern by exploring what might constitute a more sustainable transport system and charting a course towards that s: OECD, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.
