Living without the car .

Petrol was rationed in September 1939 at the outbreak of the Second World War, petrol was the first commodity to be rationed as all petrol had to come from overseas. Then in 1942 petrol for private use was withdrawn completely. It was only available for work deemed essential, and a special permit was needed to obtain it.
Living and working in a modern world and not using the car is possible but with lack of decent affordable public transport, the closure of our local railway ( the Beecham cuts) it’s not as easy but we will be shopping where possible on foot or by bike.
