Private transport efficiency

How many cars contain one person travelling?

6=one occupant/driver
15=more than one occupant

Time 1600
Place Southsea
Journey 3 miles
Date 23 May 2010 (Sunday)

21 cars. More efficient usage could have taken this down to about 19 cars, woohoo! The first time I've actually counted when cars are being used properly.

27% cycling usage. Higher than weekday, but surprisingly not a lot higher! Does show that cycling probably is the main and only form of transport for many cyclists in Portsmouth.

Count (1) private cars with one occupant, (2) cars with more than one occupant, (3) cyclists, all in the oncoming lane.
Do not count commercial/working vehicles (vans, taxis, cars with stuff written on them).
