The car is one of the best and most useful inventions ever made. This device makes it extremely easy to visit relatives and get daily needs like going to the store. The car is probably the best invention next to electricity because now we all have an efficient way of getting around. Using horses was a decent way of transportation but then you had to feed, take care, shelter and clean up after them. With horses you also could only have a maximum of 2 to 3 people and with car you could get many more people in there if you needed to. There was also some bad that came out of cars, such as people getting into accidents and hurting people, speeding, drunk driving and bad emissions that pollute the environment. Overall the car makes everything easier and as long as everyone follows safety rules the no one will get hurt.
