Why Choosing Public Transportation Over Driving Your Own Car?

Advertisements

If you drive a car on a regular commuting hours, to work or school, and you were spending money on gas, car maintenance, and engine oil, these expenses can quickly rack up overtime. There are millions or billions of cars rolling on highways, and streets everyday. Well, electric cars are coming to streets near you… save it for car-sharing companies, and transit companies.

Subway trains, trolleys/trams/streetcars commuter trains, buses, and other public transit services are designed to help cut air pollution. If you were taking a school bus to school, but you prefer a city bus over a school bus, this is useful when you wanted to have full control of your own route. Typically, if you were driving to a store far away from you, and you look at your odometer; your milage racks up overtime. Not just it tracks how many miles you were traveling, you are also reducing your vehicles operating milage. Most vehicles what people own for personal use rack up miles for many years. Taking a bus at the other hand help reduce your car’s milage usage, giving it a long haul of being dorment,–until you need it. Since I don’t own a car, I rely on transit services to go from home to store, or home to business to work. In 2015; I discovered Small bus transit systems to help Salina Kansas go green. And I was familiar with this service. Unfortunately, Salina Kansas doesn’t have a tram system for quiet traveling experience,–without rumbling via a combustion engine.

What’s The Point About Owning An Automobile?

We own our own vehicles as a preferred method to travel to places our way. There are many car owners who own cars as a way to go places without a strict route via buses.

Some of us use our own cars to commute for shopping, fishing, and other activities.

Automobiles Has Replaced Horse-Drawn Carriages

Long time ago, carriages were pulled by horses; this is also the time when rail transport is common, that include trams, trains, and other forms of rail transport. Horse-drawn carriages were common during this era, however; the Amish rely on horse-drawn carriages because, they don’t want to use modern tech,–just like the rest of us. Well, horse-drawn carriages has experienced many difficulties like overworked horses, exchanging them to pull carts, and even dung littered by horses. Spooked horses are the known cause of accidents via horse-drawn carriage.

Horses are too expensive to care for, and many people has to find ways to go places… that’s when automobiles were invented to replace horse and carriages. It made our lives easier, and reduced our time to go places. Trams and trains are the first to be invented because, road transportation via gas-powered cars are too expensive because, they’re usually owned by the rich, or people who own businesses.

We taken this for granted, but one day; we created a crash! Our bodies aren’t designed for high-speed impact because, we have delicate skin, and structure. However; automobile usage were dangerous during these times because, you have to be extra careful when driving. For this instance; you were driving at night; you must have lights on. But cars didn’t have lights installed during these days because, they’re only driven during the day,–until streetlights has been invented, making it easier for us to see in the dark, before we have this kind of technology; we have to use stars to see at night, and this is daunting when we try to drive at night. Modern light technology has caused us to see very less stars… that also upset scientists who study stars because, light pollution. Light pollution is a top concern for many people who study stars each night.

When General Electric has been involved in a conspiracy that involves streetcars… that caused many streetcars to be end up rendered out of use. This conspiracy is illegal because, forcing use of automobiles infringed the rights of people who wanted to use trams over automobiles. In my opinion; these trams don’t use that much fuel as cars do!

Back to automobiles replacing carriages pulled by horses, many people started businesses that are dedicated to make automobiles for all of us to go places.

Advantages

This is transportation hosted by you. You can go anywhere around your area. Typically, if you live in a rural environment; you may need it to go places. If you currently have any type of car… gas or electric, you can travel with your custom route.

You can go beyond fixed routes via a bus. And you can get access to motels to sleep overnight, after a long drive. Motels offer you a place to rest after a long drive. Unlike sleeping in your car; you can get other services with motels that are dedicated for motorists who often drive from one place to the another.

If you have navigation devices; you can go to any place desired.

No need to pay fares, you just use your money to top up your tank as you travel.

Disadvantages

Negatively effect public transportation services, as you drive your vehicle; you are making it too difficult for city buses and trains to ferry everyday people from one place to the another. High car traffic has caused delays to transit buses, and raising noise levels.

If you were a vehicle owner; you must pay taxes as you own a vehicle.

If you have a license to drive; you may need to renew it on a regular basis. You can always visit your local licensing agency in your local neighborhood.

Vehicle collisions are most likely to occur. If you were a motorists who is driving too fast; you may crash.

Maintenance costs rises overtime. If your engine ages, or your vehicle experience performing issues, you must order parts and maintain your vehicle. If your car does NOT start; you may be stranded,–if there’s no other forms of transit, or backup vehicle. If your maintenance costs goes beyond your budget; you may need to have your car recycled.

Pollution from exhaust pipes.


To some people, owning a car is great,–except for some cars that can bankrupt public transit services! That’s when some people are convincing other companies to make cars that can pollute less, and travel further with less fuel. However; this trick is often circumvented by big car manufacturers who may cheat the system.

If you were reconsidering public transit over owning a car/van; this set of factors may educate you about these issues what we face everyday when going places.

Also, these factors will also tell you key reasons why using public transportation can help cut air pollution each day.

What’s Wrong With Owning An Automobile For Personal Transportation Over Taking A Tram?

In my opinion; people started to become dependent on automobiles over trams/streetcars/trolleys. If I can get my calculations correct, and what I’ve just remembered when taking a school bus to school in Brooklyn, NY… I discovered these elevated tracks that are solid on the underside of these tracks. If I’m not mistaking, it was used for some tram service in New York some years ago. If you were passing it via the underpass, what you can see, is the stairs that takes you up to it, I’m not sure if this type of a station is used for a trolley to stop at this station. Unfortunately, I haven’t taken a closer look of these units. They were left neglected, weeds growing high from these tracks, and it could be a neglect to their own old transit system. There is no such comeback for this old format of transit for everyone, including tourists! High dependency of automobiles has played a negative duty to bring this non-polluting form of transit to a permanent halt. CO2 levels in New York City has caused people to have breathing problems, and new automobile sales continue to run, and there’s no possibility to stop it.

When automobiles were cheaper to own, that caused the tram/streetcar/trolley service to go out,–rendering this service unused for a long time. Typically, automobiles are designed for commercial use like taxi sservices, pizza delivery, etc. However; traveling via personal automobiles should be only intended for a backup use if no transit service existed in very small towns with few people. For this instance, short-distance traveling. It’s possible to bring your car with you as you go from one town to the another. Most trains offer this service for people who own cars.

Overtime, people started to buy new cars, and waste money on insurance, titles, and other factors. They also waste money on gasoline, motor oil, fluids, and other equipment for their vehicles.

When motor vehicles reach a point that causes it to be unusable overtime; they’re sent to junkyards, being left to rot, and used tires are usually left on these old automobiles to rot. However; rail companies collect old automobiles to be turned into railway tracks for our trains of any kind.! Not just railway companies reuse old cars to turn it into new products; steel mills use them to melt scrap metal to make new products. If you recently use any of these products like a mobile phone, or even your toaster; they’re made of recycled materials. Recycled materials saves money on resources, and even helps the environment.

Owning a car is intended for commercial use in my opinion, using it for personal use can lead to further pollution, and even loss of trams/trolleys/streetcars, and even a loss of clean transit services.

Road construction has caused our towns to experience air and noise pollution. These roads has also displaced conservative communities who rely on streetcars, and other public transit services.

There’s still possibilities to live without needing a car!

Even if you still own a car, and you want to travel; there’s still a possibility to live without one,–even if you recently sold your car because, you no longer use it to travel to places, giving transit companies a chance to profit via passengers paying fares. If more fares are paid, and more people take buses, trams, trains, and subways… we can help reduce air pollution. Choosing to take a tram over driving also help reduce cars on the road, reduce maintenance costs for road-managing companies/services, reduce car accidents, reduce fuel costs for commercial truck fleets, reduce production costs for producing new cars, dim roads, for less traffic conditions, reduce traffic jams, offset vehicle collisions, enable trains to travel faster, and ease the weight of vehicles using these roads.

Taking a tram over driving a car also offset costs of getting a license to drive. You let the tram engineer drive, and that’s their job. Although; the advantage of taking a tram, and relying on it is the following:

  • You can interact with other people – you socialize with other people on this tram. Unlike a city bus, they can carry more people, and they don’t need an engine compartment for housing an engine. Well, there are diesel trams out there, but their still useful.
  • Reduces noise on streets – trams are quiet, and they roll on dedicated tracks on elevated tracks, or dedicated streets,–or dedicated lanes on the road. Unlike cars, they don’t have noisy gas engines, and they don’t make as much noise.
  • Frees up streets, and enable cyclists who ride bikes to bike safely, and experience fresh air, not just riding a bike is good for the environment; you also exercise. If more cyclists take over the streets, that’s more than enough to cut pollution, and enable bikers to go to work, or even connect to trams when bringing bikes with them.
  • Slows production of cars/vans – this is a special strategy to reduce unused and unsold inventory. However; these cars can be recycled, and turned into new trams. If you recently owned a car, but you prefer to take a tram ride, you can reduce your car usage.
  • Rewind to the previous era – trams are great transit machines what we want to bring back. These machines do deserve an apreciation. Unfortunately, there’s no new company designed to bring back old trams, or develop replicas that resemble old trams what we currently missed out today. If your city didn’t have working trams turned back on, you’re really missing out.

Trams are fun to ride for some people, if you are a car owner; you may experience the following disadvantages:

  • If trams/streetcars are rolling down the street, you may need to follow all driving laws of these streets. These trams have their own dedicated streets where cars are prohibited from entering and using. For this instance; you were driving one day to work, and you were about to load your pocket with some cash after working, you discovered a tram ahead of you. You keep distance from a tram. However; if a tram has her stop signs out when the doors open, you must stop your car. If a motorist fails to stop the car when people board the tram; someone can get hurt, and you may be liable for injuries and death… and even damages. If you were violating the new laws; a police car may pull you over; and you may end up receiving a ticket, warning, or be arrested,–or in some cases; your vehicle may be seized. If you were a drunk driver; and you’ve knocked the tram off her tracks; you may be held liable for damages, injuries, death, and even repairs to a tram itself; in serious cases; your car may be end up impounded for drunk driving.
  • You may need to retake driving classes. This is normal for people who still own cars for personal transport. However; you may need to deal with trams everywhere!
  • Few or lack of gas stations. If you were about to top up your fuel for your car, you may need to work harder when finding a nearest gas station. You may need a backup supply of gasoline to reduce risks of being stranded on some roads. If you managed to reach a gas station, and you topped up your fuel, prepare for paying more for gasoline because, gasoline prices will go higher than average because, these gas stations were experiencing financial difficulties. Tram usages are now common, and you must have enough money to fill up your vehicle. Now commercial taxi services are relying on gas stations.
  • High gas costs.
  • Motorists has to deal with these machines.
  • Tram tracks may damage vehicle tires,–if drivers aren’t careful.
  • Overhead live wiring has a high voltage.
  • Lack of dealerships where cars are sold.
  • Taxi services may exist,–but ferry you from your location to a tram service.
  • You may need to find a place to park your car. But using a dedicated garage is encouraged because, it may be a law that prohibit drivers from parking at the very edge of your street, commercial vehicles are excempt from this law.
  • Greater parking costs, but but this is no deal for me because, I don’t own a vehicle at this time, and I have no plans to own one in the future.
  • Lack of driveways, parking lots, and high tram traffic.
  • High CO2 taxes by 75%.

Why You Should Sell Your Car And Replace It With Tram Rides?

As you transition to taking trams, and making a difference for our planet. Eliminating automobile dependency is key to removing cars from our roads. As you sell your car, and replace it with public transit, you are also supporting a public transit sector, and you are helping our community reduce cars on highways, and silencing our towns, and removing toxic fumes like nitrogen oxide, and other toxic fumes. If you sold your car, and take a bus, you can enable drivers who drive buses drive vehicles for you,–if it’s a trackless tram, or a traditional tram with rails. A 70-passenger tram can remove 70 cars from the road, enabling truckers to ferry goods to everyday businesses where we go to consume products and services. If one person in NYC reconsidered tram services to travel, and each person who lives in this city sells 1 ore more cars; that’s more than enough to quiet these streets, and make room for trams to come back to service. If we take Salina, KS as an example; and we have many people take trams to travel, how much money you will save as you take trams?

If people has started to reconsider trams as a replacement for cars, and started newer tram companies, or revive older tram companies; it will regain popularity, and automobile ownership will be obsolete,–unless they’re being sold for government use, taxi services, and emergency vehicles.

The following factors will provide you information about why you should sell your automobile when it’s no longer practical because, you chose tram transit:

  • Maintenance costs rises
  • You took mass transit for at least 6 months
  • You are converting your garage into a new shop

Also, expensive road construction has caused many residents to be relocated. This expensive road construction for automobile traffic has caused our government to spend over millions of dollars each month. Toll roads or turnpikes were paid by motorists each day. However; people who take trams often cause turnpikes to experience revenue loss, truckers rarely use these roads, but these toll roads can render truckers paying more as they travel. Private roads that are used by motorists often have expensive maintenance costs. Asphalt pavers; asphalt itself, road rollers, compacters, and other machines are often rented, or owned by companies, who run turnpikes. If turnpikes didn’t receive revenue because, people take mass transit, these roads will be abandoned, or sold to a third party to get out of debt. These roads has also caused a negative impact to nature.

If trams managed to take over abandon streets, that will cause automobile traffic to be displaced, causing motorists to take detours, and find a place to park their cars. With a tram, you don’t need a car.

Common car manufacturers are General Motors, Ford, Chevy, Toyota, Dodge, and other manufacturers may experience revenue loss when people start taking trams. However; these companies can shift to manufacturing trams, and other railway vehicles. As a prospective; 200 trams carrying 100 people can erase 20,000 cars from our road. That’s more than enough for these quiet roads to be left unused for years, and be reclaimed by trams, or demolished to bring back former communities.. If there are elevated roads in NYC; they will be changed back to narrow roads for truckers and public transit vehicles. And These roads will someday be converted to elevated paths for biking communities.

If we managed to shift back to trams and eliminate car traffic each day, we can remove parking lots, and implement parking buildings for people who wanted to enter a “car-free city” as an experience without automobile traffic, but trucks going through.

All of these cars parked along the curb has caused children to squeeze between cars to board buses. They’re usually parked as a way to enable motorists to place their vehicles to their desired space. Garages offered by large city are supposed to keep people from parking their cars along the curb. Here are the following issues what I’ve encountered as I take a closer look of Halsy Street:

  • In 2002; there was a city bus having trouble using 1 side of a street properly – these vehicles has been parked along the curb because, these streets are narrow, and there’s no way to bike along the edge of the street. These vehicles has been causing the inner section of a street to experience cramming. If a collision occurs, you can imagine a mess like this! Unfortunately, these garages that are available may be seldom used, but they costs money for your vehicles to be parked inside. This unlawful loophole has caused these motorists to break laws like driving along the printed median of a 2-way street. City bus drivers in New York has experienced many of these difficulties. Ice cream trucks, school buses, trucks, and even emergency vehicles also experience these issues. If these cars were removed, it will be easy for traffic to use streets correctly.
  • Even 2-lane streets with 2 ways… a total of 4 lanes can have this problem too. Unused lanes for parking is considered illegal, and this loophole has been left open for motorists.

If trams has came back in the first place, or kept active; that should’ve reduce conjestion on roads ans local streets. These streets teaming with automobiles isn’t a good thing! All of the noise, fumes, and even risks of accidents. That when fear of crossing streets, or parents who have fear mongering of children crossing streets rise. If traffic lights aren’t timed correctly, it’s also not good for motorists either.

What You Should Do:

Don’t purchase automobiles.

Take trams daily when going to work.

If your car is no longer in use, sell it, or donate it to a desired charity what you support.

Always keep driving books for becoming a tram driver in the future.

If you were about to transition to a tram altogether; ask your governing body to have a driveway removed from your property. Confirm if you want to do this. However; you may need to repurpose your driveway for other uses.

Convince your neighbors to do the same.

Join car-free movements.

Try to be dependent on tram travel as you can.

Convince your town to install a tram stop.

If people managed to take trams and you reached a milestone; you can encourage other commuters to fight climate change, and bring back streetcars.

Start A Movement To Bring Back Trams

Starting a community/movement to bring back trams is one way to bring back these vital machines that will reduce your carbon footprint. This strategy is intended for tram-based community groups (people who prefer trams as a mode of transit), being a ,member of a community may require you to use your car less, and take trams.

You can create a social group via any of these websites like Facebook, Twitter, or any other networks, alternatively, you can start your own website for your community. For this instance, a forum, a blogging platform, or any content platform, you can use WP Engine, or Bluehost,–or any other desired hosting platform that doesn’t pollute our environment.


What’s Wrong With Driving A Car Over Taking A Subway Train?

Despite having an underground subway train, people still drive cars, causing their milage to rack up,–just like what I’ve mentioned earlier. If you were driving in the big city with an installed underground subway, you are still polluting air, and you were depriving profit from a service what people rely on. If you were a person who only reserve driving for traveling beyond a big city like going to hotels to stop and rest, or normal shopping trip, you may need to find a way around this gap. Unfortunately, subway train services don’t support shoppers who have a mass load of groceries. They just keep going forward, and they stop for a short time. That applies to grocery shoppers who use personal carts carrying goods purchased from stores. If I can get my calculations correct; the NYc subway has experienced a loss of revenue because, car traffic is still active above ground, depriving trams/streetcars/trolleys access to these streets to serve the public. Having less cars, and more trains is key to reducing CO2, and noise. The London Underground, the New York City Subway, and Paris Metro are known subway services what we must use to save our world. The key of running a subway for your citizens is important to keep this service running. Now these days, recycling materials is a way to pay fares, and save our planet.

If you managed to take a subway everyday, and let your car set idle without the engine running, and use it for occasional use, you can reduce the wear and tear of your vehicle,–making it last longer, and use it in the future like major shopping, and other uses. As a prospective, if everyone uses a subway service in NYC over driving a car, that’s more than enough to make enough room for commercial trucks carrying goods to rely on roads to deliver our goods safely, and enable city buses to use these roads to ferry passengers each day. If we managed to pay fares like a champ, we can able to give this form of transit a chance to serve passengers each day!

All of that noise, and all of that air pollution, and even toxic fumes has caused many cancers, and breathing problems like asma, COPD, and other breathing problems. These asphalt streets often be littered with oil spillage, gasoline leaking from tanks after serious accidents, and even speeding motorists who compete with other motorists. Everyday, crashes, and fatal accidents has killed many people in large cities, and emergency rooms are teaming with crash victims, who experienced difficulties recovering from a serious crash. People with epilepsy are most likely to crash. Blind citizens are the most vonerable because, they can be struck by vehicles without warning. Technology that warn motorists to stop often fail daily. Driving phobias are common in a motorized world like this.

trains with few people onboard, and unused platforms is a waste of city revenue, including platform closures. Reopening platforms and expanding a subway is key to convince people to take trains is a common feature for tourists who often visit large cities.

Driverless cars don’t mean better, but trains carrying people in large city is key.

Road construction is a waste of government money, and they’re teaming with loud cars speeding with high speeds, belching lots of pollutants what we combat each day.

What Happens If We Managed To Take An Underground Subway Each Day?

If we managed to take a subway each day, and keep our car at home to rest, we can think about how efficient is taking a train over driving a car. Not just it can be powerful enough to cut air pollution, you will also experience these following advantages:

  • Underground train travel eases the weight off these streets – like trams what I’ve mentioned earlier; they can reduce cars like erasing 200 of these units each minute. That can also cause gas stations to retain more gas for commercial fleet vehicles like taxis, and commercial vans. Streets are able to experience less wear, and that will also enable emergency vehicles to use these streets efficiently. Cyclists can safely bike down these streets,–without needing to be limited to a narrow bike path.
  • Reduces expenses for maintaining streets by maintenance crews – this is necessary to cut costs to save money, and enable a subway system to make more money, and reduce fare costs overtime,–if people fill up trains everyday.
  • Although; motor vehicle sales may drop, and gas sales may drop, but it will be consumed by commercial entities. However; bike-sharing companies may start making more money than usual.
  • As a prospective, CO2 levels may drop, and roads will be quieter than usual. Well, you can still hear trucks passing by,–indicating easy transport of goods for everyone.
  • An underground subway service begins to make more money, and spend some of it overtime.
  • If all of these vehicles are no longer driven for personal use via long usage, but short usage… that can save hundreds of dollars each month, or thousands of dollars each year.
  • Supports the railway industry. If you like trains, and you dislike driving your own vehicles; a railway industry for passenger trains is suitable for you. If you apreciate a subway train in a city, you may stick with rail transport as your prefered method of transportation.
  • Although; there are some disadvantages… if you still own a car:

    • More cyclists rolling down the street.
    • Lack of gas stations because, gas hasn’t been sold to regular customers. Higher prices may burn your wallet.
    • Requires you to retake driving classes.
    • May need to deal with few motorists, but this is not a deal for police, fire, medical, and public transit buses.
    • Being lonely when driving on streets.
    • Being bombarted by commercial vehicles passing you.
    • High CO2 output regulations.
    • High taxes to pay.
    • Almost like living in the previous era, but this is not a deal for some people who live without needing cars.
    • Narrow streets and roads.
    • Lack of parking lots.
    • Weak streets that can crack via a weight of your car.

    When To Take A Subway

    Here are the factors when to take a subway train, whether you own a car or not:

    • You need to travel from one place to the another as fast as possible. Subway trains go fast.
    • Driving isn’t suitable for a city that strategically prohibit anyone from driving personal vehicles. Typically, these streets are teaming with cyclists who reclaimed the streets. If former elevated roads are present; they may be repurposed as tramways, or be reserved for truckers, buses, and other transit vehicles,–or in some cases; a former elevated road may be removed, or closed to motor traffic,–being repurposed as elevated parks.
    • You just moved to a large city where you choose a subway as a mode of transit.
    • Opposing automobile dependency as a way to cut air pollution.
    • Car-free lifestyle to support use of a subway system.
    • Enables an underground subway to hire more transit employees.
    • Make an effort to eliminate cars on busy streets.
    • Quiet down noise pollution, this is necessary to quiet down noise for sleeping villagers.
    • Reduce risks of traffic violations, speeding tickets, and other issues. If you were a person who still owns a vehicle as a personal form of transportation; you may need to park your vehicle somewhere in a large city.
    • Curbside parking has been outlawed to protect cyclists against speeding motorists.
    • You were part of a community where they disallow owning of motor vehicles, or disallow driving of personal vehicles.
    • Your family disallows owning motor vehicles as they convince you to take trains as a default mode of transit.
    • You don’t own any crude oil stocks, ETFS, or oil fields.
    • Avoidance of traffic tickets, and vehicle collisions.
    • You own a bicycle over an automobile.
    • You’ve recently sold your vehicle, you sold your vehicle because, you switched from driving your personal vehicle to taking a train. You have plans to drive transit trains to ferry passengers each day.
    • You’re a skateborder who is a professional skater who is using a skateboard as a mode of transit.
    • You currently owned a trike, if you own a trike (or tricycle), you don’t need to drive. You can always take a train to travel faster.
    • No possibility to buy a car during difficult times.

    Note:

    Periodically read articles about maintenance schedules when you take a subway each day.

    What You Should Do:

    Take a subway in large cities each day, and go car-free. If you currently have a car, reconsider taking a train, and leave your car at home.

    You can also sell your car to fully eliminate common expenses to car ownership.

    If you still want to drive, work for a subway service in your area, and take classes to drive trains. Classes are available.

    Pay fares like usual. The more money goes to the subway system, the better.

    Develop a community who relies on a subway to travel, and apreciate train travel.


    What’s Wrong With Driving A Car Over Taking A Commuter Train?

    Okay, we’re now talking about commuter trains… those are diesel trains what we take for granted. Driving a car over taking a train to travel long distances can be a bad idea. But this is not the case for people who drive to operate transit machines. These machines are driven by licensed drivers who were specially trained to handle mass transit.

    Everyday, people who commute via driving cars experienced collisions with other motorists. However; we’ve been facing our enemy because, alcohol is common. Drunk drivers on a road has been linked to deaths of motorists, passengers, and pedestrians who cross streets. If you heard a news about a drunk driver, and you were a concerned motorist who wanted to be aware of these issues, you should always report suspected DUI. Ignition interlocks has been installed to vehicles to keep drunk drivers off the road. Also crashes caused by commercial trucks are the known issues. Trust me! My mother was once struck by a truck, and the state of Kansas has no easy-to-access commuter train service. This lack of train travel has caused various issues to our ecosystem like drouts, extreme cold, and even climate change. This endless dependency of automobile usage has caused us to pollute more.

    Car crashes has killed over many people when control of a vehicle is lost, or a malicious motorist who caused issues with our motorized community.

    All of these major highways must perform maintenance each day, and use various machines to resurface roads, and repave our highways. Asphalt for paving roads are products of crude oil, and they pollute more than any other pollutants.

    During the extremely cold days, or snowy weather; road maintenance crews buy road salt to help melt ice, but it contributes to soil pollution, and water pollution. That also require salt miners to mine for salt each day. If you were recently traveling on a road with icy conditions what you’re avoiding; you can see road crews spreading salt to melt the ice. This job may look like it’s cheap to do, but it’s expensive because, mining salt is required. Salt does break up asphalt and concrete. It also pollutes our ground, underground water supplies for well water, and even other parts of our planet. Animals that are attracted to salt are often killed by speeding motorists who often travel up to 65 mph; or faster.

    Untold; many car accidents has been caused by snow on roads, and there’s news about these accidents aired on TV, and posted on news blogs of any kind. If you were a person who is wondering about school dismissals because of weather conditions; this is common because, our government failed to spend on efforts to enable children to go to school via any weather condition, and enable school staff to take transit services as an alternative to driving to work. Driving your own vehicle via an icy condition is dangerous, and slippery parts of a road may cause deaths, and injuries.

    What If You Chose To Take A Commuter Train?

    CHOO CHOO! If you chose to take a train over driving, you can make room for commercial fleet vehicles like buses, trucks, and even towing services.
    Trains aren’t just efficient… they’re faster than any other vehicle on the face of the planet. Bringing back the dependency of train travel is key to reduce cars and vans on the road. This is also necessary to help cut air pollution. If we managed to take trains each day, motor traffic will be lighter, than they used to be! If this is the case, here are the advantages:

    • Less noise – this is key to reduce loss of hearing. Noise pollution has been causing our animals who live in forests to experience difficulties.
    • Reduce maintenance costs – this is necessary to help our government save money on maintaining our roads.
    • Reduce collisions – this is potential for many people who prefer train travel over driving vehicles.
    • The classic way to travel – this is the best for people who prefer to take trains over driving.
    • Experience faster traveling via train.
    • Supports the railway industry.
    • Reduce milage usage on vehicles what you owned.
    • Reduces CO2. for your country.
    • Brings in more employees who drive trains as a living!
    • Reduce possible incidents during icy conditions on roads. Trains are now set to have built-in plows to clear snow.
    • Enables a fleet of commercial trucks to use these roads,–almost like a real version of Polar Express!
    • Enable passenger buses to use these roads to ferry passengers from one place to the another. This is key to enable buses to use these roads, and they’re durable than an average car.
    • Less cars on the road. Animals that cross the road are deer, elk, antelope, moose and even bison are less likely to occur because, trains can withstand impact of these animals crossing these roads. That also help animals who were crossing the road hear other animals. Moose in Alaska are the known animals who were killed by vehicles.
    • Save money on tolls. If you needed to use your car to go places where trains won’t reach; you can use some of your money to pay for road tolls.
    • Ideal for car-free communities. If you don’t own a car, or you recently sold your car because, you are switching to train transit; you can rely on trains to go places. Some trains have special rooms that work like hotel rooms where you can sleep during transit for many days.

    You think commuter trains are great machines to ride from home to work… think again!! Some commuter trains can go as fast as a bullet train. Japan has this kind of train because, people needed to go from home to work as fast as possible. These trains can also help cut pollution. High-speed trains can also enable you to go to work from your home in one state to your place where you work at the another state! However; if you managed to reach work via train; you can see how much carbon what you’ve reduced overtime.

    Like trams and subway trains; you don’t need to drive them yourself,–unless you work for a transit service. Driving a train requires you to take extreme training and classes. If you like trains, and you dreamed of driving a train as a job, you may need to find a transit company, and work for them wisely.

    Commuter trains are fast, and they have bells and horns to command automobile traffic to stop, and let the train pass by.

    • Too many trucks to deal with.
    • Commercial busses may be competing with you.
    • Lack of driving commuters.
    • High toll costs.
    • Railway construction on former roads.
    • Few cars on the road (this is normal).
    • Trains sounding horns to alert you to stop (this is normal).
    • High CO2 taxes to pay.

    What You Should Do:

    Take a train, and leave your car at home.

    If you still want to drive, after you sold a car, you can sign up to work as a train engineer who drive trains. Transit sectors may have hiring ads to hire new drivers.

    What’s Wrong With Driving A Car Over Taking A Bus Ride?

    If you drive a car, you are still polluting, and you have to deal with buses too, and you must comply with driving laws. You are also building up traffic that will cause these buses to slow down.
    If you managed to take a bus over driving,–just like I did since 2015; here are the advantages:

    • Like trams; you free up streets.
    • Reduces cars on the street or road (commercial buses).
    • Socialize with other people.

    • No need to own a car.
    • Supports bikes,–if available.

    • Reduces traffic collisions.
    • Reduces traffic conjestion.
    • Reduce car sales, unpurchased automobiles has been filling up facilities each day. If more people take buses, manufacturing automobiles will slow down, and save companies over $500,000 daily as people take buses. As a prospective; 1 whole city bus with former car owners can erase over 100 cars. That’s more than enough to free up enough space on the road. New York City has the busiest roads on the face of the planet. These elevated roads has been a problematic system for people who rely on streetcars.
    • Saves money on gas, maintenance, and batteries for your car.

    The following disadvantages:

    • You need to deal with buses on the street/road if you were driving.
