One Less Car

One Less CarLong a slogan of bicycle activists, One Less Car is now a city program in Seattle that challenges households to give up driving one of their autos for a month in return for car-sharing vouchers and discounts on bike-safety classes. Some participants have dumped their extra vehicles for good, says David Allen of Seattle's transportation department. "Once people know about other options, they stop doing the knee-jerk jump into the car." cityofseattle.net/waytogo
