People and Cars

I just wanted to post two simple facts.  Everybody should think about these two facts in the Metro Region.
  1. Fully 79% of Metro riders own cars.
  2. During peak travel times, the average car rider takes up 25 times the amount of space on the road as the average bus rider.
Generally, from behavioral analysis I already knew that most SOV’s had drivers that where unknowingly, or sometimes knowingly, being rude, discourteous, and greedy by the mere operation of a motor vehicle.  Most people don’t think through their actions in completeness, especially since most of the repercussions of one driving are obfuscated by corporate and Government encouragement.
