Private Transport Efficiency

How many cars contain one person traveling?

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

Time 0945
Place Southsea
Journey 2.5 miles
Date 3 August 2010 (Wednesday)

42 cars. More efficient usage could have taken this down to about 20 cars, this level of sole occupant usage is bad news for a congested city such as Portsmouth. Basically single occupancy cars use such a high proportion of the road 'resource'. Its not fair.

25% cycling usage. Bit overcast, but lots of cycling commuting.

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).
