Eleven Ideas for Eliminating the Automobile

That title should immediately mark this post as "pie in the sky," but John Markos O'Neill at Into Future offers a number of ideas that could be practically implemented to at least make driving less appealing. Of course, without major systemic changes in mass transit, there's no real chance of even approaching such a lofty goal, and in the US, the association of driving with individual freedom has to be addressed. Still, why not set the bar high? A few of these concepts seem unworkable and even a little bizarre (not that that's a bad thing), but a combination of some of the more practical ones could have positive effects.

This will likely be my only post today -- spent most of the morning working on my first column for Greener magazine. I'll let you know when it's posted...
