Vintage Posters from When Driving alone was nearly a Crime

During the war as Uncle Albert from “Only fools and horses” said, driving alone was considered almost a crime.  As Peter Maass said: “If we become less reliant on oil–which means becoming more conservation-minded and efficient, as well as developing renewable energy on a broader scale than is already underway–we will not feel a need to go to war for oil’s sake, or to support a dictator for oil’s sake.”

They said exactly the same thing in World War II; We have just found this posters that lays out the issue so graphically.
