I just wanted to post two simple facts. Everybody should think about these two facts in the Metro Region.
- Fully 79% of Metro riders own cars.
- 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.
