We currently have 4 questions tagged .

We also have 2 questions tagged . One of those is also tagged , and the other mentions cars, so should have the tag if we decide to keep it.

However, do we need both and ? It seems to me that any question involving implies travel. Is there a sufficient distinction to merit two separate tags?

If so, is what we want? What about trucks, boats, trains, etc.? I would prefer not to see separate tags for each of those, so if we need a tag to accomplish what is trying to do, perhaps we should reconsider the name?


I think travel works best in this case, and adding other modes of transportation tags seems somewhat superfluous, and I don't think there is enough distinction to warrant a second more specific tag.

  • Agreed. I used the cars tag once (because it already existed); if I'd noticed the travel tag I would have used that instead. Oct 20 '13 at 16:48

    I implemented the recommendations in Josh's answer (which remove the "cars" tag). Oct 20 '13 at 21:09
  • That sounds excellent :)

Well, let's look at the four questions:

(1) What are the risks of leaving a dog unattended in the car?

The answer to this question (and this question itself) really applies to any vehicle; in this sense, is not appropriate, but neither is ; is fine on its own.

(2) Long Car Trips with my Dog and (3) How can I keep my cats safe in my car?

is much more appropriate for these, with as a synonym.

(4) What's a suitable way to drive with a big dog in the car?

Both ( as synonym) and for this, since you can have a big dog in a tight space in other vehicles.
