Please check my TOEFL essay (TWE_e01)Q: Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? In twenty years, there will be fewer cars in use than there are today. ...... There is debate concerning whether there will be fewer cars in use in the future. As far as I am concerned, I strongly disagree with this statement. A big change in the life style coupled with an unbelievable rate of technological progress support my idea and would lead to more driving alone. My arguments are given as bellow. To begin with, some evidences undoubtedly show a vast growth in the rate of moving from rural areas to the city or suburbs. The current policy in the most countries is not at least in the mid-term preventing from urbanization. In contrast, most people who live in rural areas -which are usually low income areas- have to move to the cities dreaming of enhancing their quality of life. In other words, the public will have more tendency to urbanization and live more close to urban due to reduce job commute. We also can not deny that people who live in the city are more enthusiastic to go on trip and drive lonely. This mainly change in the settlement patterns and life style would definitely lead to the increase in the number of people who drive alone in the future. Afterward, development of technology is not going to stay at the same level. The incredible undeniable pace of technological progress will bring us several benefits. At first it would help companies to reduce their costs and also the price of their production in order to stay competitive. Today most people in the world can not afford car prices. New technologies will bring the countries more ability to improve infrastructures and clearly the more enhancement in the quality of life. Also some predicts, for example, a recent one by Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, have reported these pros as the results of the technology in the future. Needless to say, the more quality of life, the more demands to buy new things such as car. Thinking into what has discussed above, our future life would be influenced by the incredible role of technology. One of its specific results would be the better quality of life, thereupon more people who will be more eager to buy those things that currently can not afford. An old saying goes "The more you have, the more you get". It is obviously says that no matter what goes right, you always want to earn more and more. All in all, I can safely draw the conclusion that in twenty years, there will be more cars in use than there are today
