Private Transport Efficiency

How many cars contain one person traveling?

52=one occupant/driver
25=more than one occupant

Time 1000-1300
Place Portsmouth/Hilsea/NorthEnd
Journey 5 miles
Date 1 September 2010 (Wednesday)

101 cars. More efficient usage could have taken this down to about 38 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.

24% cycling usage. Highest for some time.

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).
