How many vehicles in the World?
« on: Tuesday, 27 June, 2017 @ 16:44:54 »
An old news item, but still very relevant. It says 'cars', so public and goods traffic would add to this total.

The number of cars on the world's roads surpassed one billion last year, according to a study that has spurred debate on what the rapidly-growing car population will mean for the world's economy and environment.

According to a report from Ward's Auto released last week, the global number of cars exceeded 1.015 billion in 2010, jumping from from 980 million the year before.

Not surprisingly, China led the way in vehicle growth, with the number of cars on Chinese roads increasing by 27.5 per cent, amounting to half the entire global growth.
