London is different. Unless they work at an awkward position where they’d have to travel into central then out again to get to work, driving is usually never quicker.

And the schools they attend tend to be in a catchment area, meaning they’ll live near enough to probably not need a car and can walk at the very least.

There are buses that go down almost every road in London, with varying routes. I can only imagine it’s worth driving when in the outer boroughs, but for all intents and purposes I’m assuming we are imaging someone driving an SUV in a very congested area, where public transport is prolific. Unnecessary.
