I am disabled and can only walk less than 40 yards so the option to start walking is impossible for me, the bus or train station is too far for me.

Nothing like Mr K's obsession with generalising and stereotyping everybody again.

Yes, you missed out the bit on my post where I said there'd have to be exceptions for those that genuinely couldn't get around.

Re: Petrol & diesel vehicles ban (2040).

Petrol / Diesel ban - How do they know that they will be in power in 2040 in order to decide this? Or has it already been decided by someone with more authority than whoever might be in power?

I'm not against the idea, but I would imagine they will want to make sure everyone is properly tagged, tracked and in the shiny new national carbon / battery rental / "energy-usage database" before all the rest of the vehicles are allowed to be electric-only. That is to say - if car ownership is even a thing by then. They will probably try to outlaw private vehicle ownership entirely, eventually - that is if self-driving electric taxis become cost-effective enough before electric vehicles are allowed to reach maximum penetration.
