The article shares the author's views on the advantage for the rubber industry by scrapping old cars. He opines that with the U.S. president Barack Obama considering the legislation that would give motorists about $4,500 in government money to trade in their older cars for new ones, the rubber industry will get the benefit. According to him, the new legislation would stimulate new vehicle sales and would also be environment friendly as older cars pollute more than new ones.
