Focusing on the year 1971, starting at almost 10% percent, homes that drove two cars rose steadily reaching up to about 25% in 2007. In contrast, households that did not drive a car showed an opposite trend, in which it initially started at a mere 50% percent in 1971 and dropping gradually to a low of roughly 25%.
Looking at three or more cars, they began at approximately 2% and soared up gradually to just over 5% by the end of the period in question. Conversely, at a negligible 45%, one car household regular drivers remained stagnant throughout the whole period.
