A new study shows a one-way car sharing vehicle can eliminate as many as 11 cars from the road, and cut greenhouse gas emissions by 13 metric tons a year
Nearly 90% of Americans own cars, making the country a leader in traffic jams and pollution and costing the economy $124bn. Car sharing presents a good antidote to decongesting our roads – it gives people the freedom to drive whenever they want without the cost of maintaining and parking their cars.
According to new research released this month, each vehicle used for one-way car sharing, in particular, can eliminate as many as 11 cars from plying the streets and cutting greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 13 metric tons a year.
