Maltese Youths Won’t Use Buses Even If They Improve

According to a survey commissioned by the Faculty for Social Wellbeing at the University of Malta and conducted by pollster Vince Marmara, younger people and students exhibit greater attachment to their cars than older individuals, despite the increased awareness of global warming and emissions.


The survey reveals that young people perceive cars as a symbol of independence and self-actualization, even though they acknowledge the negative impact of traffic on social and ecological well-being.


The survey also indicates that traffic has a detrimental effect on mental health and well-being, as reflected in respondents’ answers to other questions.
