Climate change in action: view from the driver's seat
Being stuck in a queue of traffic is no fun. Even people who drive infrequently know that a slow trip on a congested road network is painful. So even the most progressive advocate for public transport might have some sympathy for the views of politicians who are sceptical of measures like bus priority. In cities where bus patronage is low, efforts to make it more attractive – with a new bus lane, for example – can feel like a punishment to people who drive cars.
