Nice post!! Your tips on driving seem to be very informative. I feel that these should be followed by the children that would allow them to have a firm control on the car. The driving lessons are very compulsory to have a proper outlook and overview. The driving license in our country are very difficult to achieve and proper lessons can turn in favor of you.
where the superscripts 0 and 1 indicate values of demand, T, and cost, C, before and after the change in cost, respectively. For example, if car fuel costs increase by 10% and trips by car fall by 2%, then the elasticity of car trips with respect to fuel cost would be log(0.98)/log(1.10)=-0.212. For the purposes of these realism tests, demand would be in terms of car-kms (for private modes) or person trips (for public transport). Elasticities would normally represent long-term responses unless indicated otherwise.
Great read John, even thinking that more people should actually be cycling to work not for just less cars on the road but for overall health reasons also. Whats your thoughts on that?
I completely agree, and I see more people cycling in my neighbourhood than 5 years ago. More than double, which is a good thing.
Terrific post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this topic?
I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little
bit further. Appreciate it!
i agree, car should be used for picnic or going somewhere with a lot of carrying right?
You can certainly see your enthusiasm within the article you
