I never seen something like that

Stephen Marriott

War on Cars. I think the car thing has gotten way out of hand . Why on earth would a family of five in a relatively small suburb with great public transportation need five cars? Why do people drive to a city when they could take public trans. and not stress about traffic? I don't get it. I like the French mayor's idea for in town traffic, and leave rural highways as they are.

Last Monday I took a 250 mile drive northeast to Lake Tahoe for vacation. One of my daughters drove 150 miles, the other about 350 miles in order to meet up with me. On Saturday, I drove 140 miles south to meet up with friends for a weekend get together. Without my car, I wouldn't be able to leave town or it would take me days to get where I drove in a few hours. I'm not sure I want to wage total war on cars at this point.

I think we should reduce our dependence on cars and increase public transportation.

I would not call that a 'war' and I am suspicious of the motives of someone who characterizes a sound economic and environmental policy as a 'war'.
