We'll have to be careful about getting political with this. I'm almost over the line already. There's all sorts of scenarios to use as examples. Here's one. I was just looking at a website called "mopedbus". The concept is a small passenger bus with a trailer. Suburban commuters catch this bus at, say, the walmart parking lot. They then ride into the city. They have their mopeds with them when they are downtown plus to and from the bus in the morning. Now I'll bet that many people, even some Escalade commuters, would gladly take part in something like this. Even while fuel is low in price. They'd do it for the same reason that we still like to ride our MBs. So how do we raise public awareness of possibilities like this? Television comes to mind, since everyone pays attention to that. How about if the Dept of Transportation used some of those fuel taxes we all pay to buy some commercial time and point out this type of alternative. And not on late night reruns either; make it prime time. Maybe during football games and such. Pay the going market cost. And it need not be a lecture. They could describe the idea and then pose the question. "Do you think this is a good idea? Or not? Please tell your people in Congress and in your state legislature." I'll bet we could get a lot more done this way than by regulating us to death.
