I found the last paragraph of your article on the debate over motorway expansion regarding the benefit of each person reducing their annual number of car trips by 37, rather amusing (NCE last week).
It prompted the immediate response, yes, but which 37 trips will they forego?
Apart from that, when will we stop constructing hugely expensive motorways, and instead build faster, cheaper, more civilised and safer 'parkways' on to which to divert the cars and similar light vehicles, leaving the juggernauts to battle for supremacy among themselves?
And while we are at it, when will they stop trying to impose congestion charging upon us, and instead consider more humane private mileage rationing, which, incidentally, could not only solve congestion, but also help to solve our environmental, and other serious traffic-related problems?
