The Frog 2015 survey of 1999 people across China, Denmark, Germany and the United States investigated modern attitudes towards car ownership. The data indicates that 53% of the sample use their own vehicle compared to 14% on public transport. Interestingly, 37% of car owners revealed they could easily give up their vehicle without it affecting their daily routine. Additionally, 30% admitted they would rather give up their car than their smartphone. At first, this seems unbelievable but it makes sense when you consider vital tasks like e-mail and web browsing are just a touch away.

On another note, travelling long distances to reach office spaces could theoretically become an outdated notion as people begin to work from home. Similarly, virtual presence devices might be accepted although that does seem like a long time off. In today’s market, it’s incredibly expensive to run a vehicle especially if you’re under the age of 30. Petrol prices and insurance costs are absolutely staggering.

Smartphones are now an integral part of daily life and becoming more influential as each passes. The advent of cheap, Android handsets have broadened the appeal and contributed to many people’s social media addiction. Clearly, many struggle to live without a smartphone, and this is shown quite clearly in the Frog study.
