One Way

One Way

The automobile is this country’s primary mode of transportation. A study made in February of 2008 shows the national average is 2.28 cars per household. To someone from a foreign country, especially one with limited numbers of automobiles, our traffic flow and amount of congestion, could really confuse them. How do we keep these automobiles all in line? We build massive highways and roads to get us from point A to point B. We post signs to control speed, direction, in hopes of controlling congestion. In this image we at least know this car is going the right way but I’m not so sure about the speed.

  1. Our dependance and love affair with the automobile begin in earnest with the building of the interstate highway systems. Today we’re paying for our lack of foresight for the future with neglected public transportation systems as energy cost rise.

    I personally would love to have good, safe, afordable and reliable public transportation.

  2. I have always been a car nut. We had finally got done to one car and then we bought a Mercedes convertable and I vowed it would never see snow, so now we are back to two.

  3. Earl: I flew out of Reagan National in DC for 5 months using their public transportation and loved it. Every since then I drive so much less and feel as you do. Our infrastructure is failing and public transportation is the way to go.

    Don: I’m not a fan of 3-car garages, 2 at the max. Yet, I’m one who will lust for some beautiful cars. I have an older car that does a good of getting me to point B, starting to look bad but it is paid for. I really do not want another car payment, so I keep it. Convertible? Nice!!!
