New Haven CT became the 4th US city to allow free metered parking to hybrid or alternate fuel vehicles ? :cool:

Would this influence your decision in getting a hybrid or alternate fuel vehicle if your community had a simular ordanace ?

Apparently you've never seen the debacle that is Detroit's people mover. It was supposed to be the great savior of downtown Detroit, what a mess.

why can't one shoulder of a major highway be a monorail system and get people up in the air instead of widening highways projects that never get finished, or so it seems to transport the masses to the major cities?. Thats simple, the politicians get their major contributions from those who benifit most from the road building. And dont forgit kickbacks etc disguised as "consulting fees"

It'll depend on where the money is or what the government regulates.

Hmmm.... MY congressman, that nasty Dem McDermot, answers my phone calls - or at least, his office staff does. This is not something that can be said of either of my senators though. One gets an answering machine and no call backs! :mad:
