Yeah Brad. I too was miffed by "road congestion". Last I checked, those
paved roads out there were designed and built to be driven on. Seems
logical to me that there would be cars on them. That's just me though.

I guess you haven't heard an electric car, although the engine isn't the
problem, true. There is still noise from the electric engine (although
1/10th of the norm), but the brakes, horns and other noises a car spews
still do exist ;). Still, with the current size of the roads, if the cars
become 1/2 as noisy, most people alive today would probably be awed at how
it had gotten.
As for road congestion? Just build more roads ;). I've heard the prattle
how urban sprawl is a bad thing, but I disagree. We should be living as far
away from each other as possible.
Anyhow the biggest problem by far with cars IS the pollution. Others are
in comparision to the smog alerts, and so on.
