I heard all the same blather as petrol went past the dollar a gallon mark!
Them that needs to have already economized. Those who can don't need to worry about the cost- well- they don't worry about the cost. So why wank on about carpooling like the concept has just been invented?
The whole carpooling thing only works when you have the following conditions:
- All concerned live near each other
- All concerned work very near to each other
- All start and finish at the same time
- There are no freeloaders in the pool
So that's why all the cars with one person in them!
Carless days [insert Tui ad here]
Some of us remember how well THAT brain fart worked!
Public transport would be fine IF it went where you wanted it and when- assuming you had any AND the public didn't use it. When I first started working in a prison, the smell reminded me of trains in the 1960-70's- stale tobacco and unwashed 'humanity'
And anyone suggesting lowering the speed limit to 80kph should just cut their wrists now!
