The Cost of Private Transportation 710004

The destruction of our environment by pollution is now everyone's concern, and the automobile run on fossil fuel is recognized as a principal source of pollution. The need for adequate public transportation emphasized by the death, disease, destruction of life and natural resources, and contribution to the waste problem wrought by the increasing numbers of private automobiles on our highways and city streets is balanced against the individual's need for privacy, which is at least partially fulfilled by operating his own automobile.
Smaller, safer, nonpolluting cars must be designed and made available and a safe, efficient system of public transportation must be constructed, in order to ensure that the quality of life deteriorates no further than it already has.
