Private Transport Efficiency

First post for a while, although I note that the approx 20% cycling vehicles continued through Nov and December, but proportion is a little lower in January

How many cars contain one person traveling?

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

Time 1630-1645 (Sunday)
Place Southsea
Journey 3 miles
Date 8 October 2010 (Friday)

28 cars. Usual Sunday pattern with much more efficient car use. Bitterly cold.

Approx 20% cycling usage. Although with the much more efficient use of cars probably a smaller than average proportion of travelers on bikes. Interesting to note that a lot more people than usual seem to travel on Sunday than weekdays, but in far fewer cars.

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).
