commented on Why Public Transportation Will Not Work Without Aggressive Social Engineering
"...the fact that driving yourself to work makes you waste hours of your life in stop and go traffic.."
This is a "fact" that does not pan out for me. When I drive to work I get there, on average, 50% faster than when I bus (at the same times of day).
The fact that riding public transportation to work makes me waste hours of my life at other peoples bus stops discourages me from riding the bus.
