Private transport efficiency

How many cars contain one person traveling?

30=one occupant/driver
24=more than one occupant

Time 1100
Place Southsea88
Journey 3 miles
Date 05 July 2010 (Sunday)

54 cars. More efficient usage could have taken this down to about 32 cars, this level of sole occupant usage is bad news for a congested city such as Portsmouth.

4% cycling usage. Really bad now the students have left the city.

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).
