Automobility "Myths":

Ted Balaker and Samuel Staley of the Reason Foundation address "5 Myths About Suburbia and Our Car-Crazed Culture" in today's Washington Post "Outlook" section. The "myths" they seek to qualify or debunk are:

  1. Americans are addicted to driving;

  2. Public transit can reduce traffic congestion;

  3. We can cut air pollution only if we stop driving;

  4. We're paving over America;

  5. We can't deal with global warming unless we stop driving.
