Safer in your own car

According to a study, the car could emerge as a winner from the Corona crisis. Many people feel at unease travelling by public transportation because of the risk of an infection. A study by the Institute for Transport Research at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) showed that you feel safe in your own car and on a bike.

The study examined how the corona crisis affects the mobility behavior of the population. According to its own information, DLR surveyed 1,000 people between 18 and 82 years old. “It is clear that the corona pandemic is fundamentally changing our mobility behavior. There are many indications that cars and bicycles could emerge as winners from the crisis, ”says Barbara Lenz, the director of the institute. “Surprisingly, many young city dwellers miss their own vehicle, especially in this situation. Whether these developments will continue after Corona will not only be interesting to see for us researchers."
