The study analyzes the possibilities and limits of rural region motorization in Eastern Bohemia, since the beginnings up to 1989. Exploration of the topic also includes the problems of situated mobility. There have been the relations of the means of transport users (cars and motorcycles) to mobility followed, together with their experiences, ideas and opinions connected with this aspect of their lives. Attention is also paid to the advent of tractors, related to the socialist village collectivisation. In general, we are provided with a critical reflection of this specific area of technology, its pragmatics, social and symbolic functions in historical context. The knowledge has been mainly gaining through the author’s field research.
