Live from Abu Dhabi Connect the World takes you on a journey across continents, investigating the stories that are changing our world.
All this week Connect The World has been reporting on traffic: with an estimated 1 billion cars around the world - 250 million in the U.S. alone - and 2,000 new drivers in China every day, it's no surprise that congestion, pollution and deaths on the roads are among the biggest concerns of most people's everyday lives.
In many major cities, for instance, traffic speeds are no faster than they were 100 years ago, when cars first took to the roads. Environmentalists are also especially worried that traffic is one of the fastest-growing sources of climate-warming carbon dioxide, and all projections are that it will continue to grow.
Despite all this, the world's love affair with the motor car shows no sign of abating. The car, of course, allows freedom of movement that public transport can never match. This is why the multi-billion-dollar motor industry is desperately striving to find alternative sources of power to replace fossil fuels when the oil inevitably runs out or in the event of politicians banning the internal combustion engine.
So in a world clogged with cars, what can be done about traffic? What really drives you mad about driving? Are drivers getting better or worse? Should individual countries impose limits on car ownership? And what will happen when the oil runs out? Send us your comments and we will try to use them in Thursday's live chat.
On Thursday on the Connect The World webcast on CNN.com Live at 2100 GMT/2300 CET with accompanying live Skype text chat from 2030 GMT/2230 CET, Becky discusses the issue and answers your questions.
