I have to find some articles on the Positive Externality(characteristics)of automobiles anad negative externality (Characteristics ) of automobiles I have found several negatives I am having a hard time finding any positive ones any suggestions

While some might consider these to be blights on the American experience (e.g., a negative externality), the fact that multitudes of Americans owning cars has given rise to
Suburbs and suburban living
Drive-in theaters
Shopping malls.
NASCAR.

Because of autos, people can see and visit National parks, beaches, ski resorts, etc. Goods can be delivered to practically anywhere, people can be rushed to hospitals, etc.

Be imaginative, and you could think of tons more.

thanks i never thought of it that way
