This answer was rated:

How did the automobile change America both geographically and socially?
The automobile transformed America geographically and socially by lifting the previously accepted norms in how people could live and do business. Instead of tightly clustered communities or cities, the automobile made it possible to traverse great distances, which allowed the formation of more loose knit communities, sprawling populations, as well as the ability to consider greater distances when investing in business.

Socially, previous considerations pertaining to where one might live, raise a family, whether one might consider relocation away from personal ties, all became much more fluid with the prospect of what could be a long and difficult journey reduced to a relatively relaxing drive.

In summary, the automobile allowed geographical restrictions to be lifted as they related both to social community development as well as commerce and business development. This has resulted in growth that is atypical when compared to what you see in many European developments, for example.

The automobile transformed America geographically and socially by lifting the previously accepted norms in how people could live and do business. Instead of tightly clustered communities or cities, the automobile made it possible to traverse great distances, which allowed the formation of more loose knit communities, sprawling populations, as well as the ability to consider greater distances when investing in or starting a business.

Socially, previous considerations pertaining to where one might live, raise a family, whether one might consider relocation away from personal ties, all became much more fluid with the prospect of what could be a long and difficult journey reduced to a relatively relaxing drive.

In many respects the geographical changes and social transformations related to this technology are interrelated. New products and services were created due to the increase in potential business developments, but also new competition which allowed products and services to become more affordable, which had an additional impact on social transformation. For example, the ability to have milk delivered to your home, or fresh produce more readily accessible in urban areas expanded the options that a family might consider when deciding where to settle down.
In summary, the automobile allowed geographical restrictions to be lifted as they related both to social community development as well as commerce and business development. This has resulted in growth that is atypical when compared to what you see in many European developments, for example.
