The advantages of the automobile are evident. It can transport the user to a location quickly and efficiently. It obviously doesn't cause any strenuous activity either. Using it, people can get to and from work and other places reasonably quick and still have time to come and sleep. A journey that would take an hour or two to walk, would take no more than 10 minutes in an automobile. It revolutionized the way people got from place to place.
