The way we drive in cities can’t be sustained during the years to come.
As our population grows, so do the number of vehicles in our large metropolitan areas. In 2012, over 76 percent of vehicles in the United States were occupied by one person during the average commute. There were 256 million vehicles registered in the United States in 2013, which explains the massive congestion encountered in cities across the country every day.
Although we can’t easily increase the capacity of our roads, ever more people will need access to American cities.
What’s the solution?
Well, for now, there isn’t one. But some prominent people think the end of the single-occupancy vehicle is in our future.
