Re: “Is public transit really more efficient?

But it's ok if the government forces us to use cars? That kind of government is OK? It's one thing to be free of government intrusion (which I like), but the trade off we are making is that more and more of our lives are dominated by large commercial interests; oil and gas are just one example. The cost of driving is borne by society as a whole, whether other citizens own cars or not. You can aspire to perfect freedom, but not if you live among humans. It is your position that indicates a cave might be best for you. I see compromises to be made just to have civilization. People will have better diets if they grow Their Own food as a community. "Approved food" Gack!! People will be more safe if they get out of their houses and mix with the neighbors.

Re: “Is public transit really more efficient?

The cost of the car must also include the cost of the land that is taken to build out roads. Polluted water runoff is a cost; cleaning water is part of the expense of maintaining cement and asphalt roads. As cars increase their MPG, the demand for roads will grow accordingly, creating even more sprawl. Many costs that the user does not pay, are paid through general revenues - income and property taxes.
