Public transportation versus cars
Pretty stunning visual of how public transportation trumps taking a car.
I’d also like to note that I have observed people who are really dependent on cars, tend to gain a lot more weight than those who are not.
I know someone who used to be really fit in high school. He didn’t have a car, walked all the time, biked, and took the bus.
The minute he got a car, he stopped doing all of that, and he has since gained 60 pounds over the past few years.
He takes the car EVERYWHERE he goes, and I don’t even think he would know how to take the TTC (Toronto public transportation system) if his life depended on it.
I am not against cars (we have one), I just think we don’t need to use them as often as we think we do. I go out in a car about once a week to get groceries.
Otherwise, I take public transportation because I get there at the same time (sometimes faster, no traffic jams to contend with), and I don’t need to pay for parking.
This picture just about sums it up:
