I remember the first time I heard that. I think it was 1978. Not that I disagree with the post in general, but autos are here to stay.

Not only that but there is no alternative for massive swaths of this country (forgetting the general population's distaste for public transport). I live in the most densely populated state and there would be no way to get from where I live to where I work other than by auto. Of course if telecommuting ever happens like all the popular rags claim is happening...... Fat chance with most NJ businesses. Mass transit works after a fashion in some big cities, but only because parking is hard to come by - create parking and watch mass transit vanish. 90+% of the US land mass cannot be serviced by mass transit-- but who cares about fly over country anyway -- unless it's an election year? A true dilemna; evolution not revolution will be the solution.
