"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Not to mention our public transport systems are great. I would never drive to Malaga now days, because the train from here to Malaga center goes every 20 min and takes 20 min or so.

I would have no problem if they did this in my nearest city, I never drive in, the traffic is ****ed, there's stupid rules due to trams, and the public transport gets me were I need to go at a lot cheaper than the cost of petrol.
"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
Firstly the plan bny those who back it is to cut down on conventional petrol and diesel engined vehicles only... secondly the UK rejected the plan yesterday and thirdly it's just a proposal at the moment, it's not a law and it's not being imposed on anyone.
