I should add, alot of people who are daily drivers, and because of their living and working situations, have no viable alternatives, are strong supporters of such alternatives. They are unable to support public transit currently because there are simply not enough hours in the day or it doesn't take them where they need to go. During the recent car free week hung a sign from the 403 overpass to advertise Car Free Day, and I was surprised at all the friendly honks we got from people in cars, stuck in traffic. I even hear it from people I work with, where absolutely everyone commutes from other cities and arrives by personal vehicle. Many people would love to get along without cars but they have no choice. Our poor planning and bias towards roads over public transit is the reason so many people have no choice.
