Lady Liberty Dumps the Car and Marries Mass Transit

We get pretty excited about the fancy new green(er) cars appearing at events like the New York Autoshow – take the new Mitsubishi iMiEV for example. It doesn’t hurt to remind ourselves though, that the greenest car is no car at all. From pedestrian- and bike-friendly urban planning to telecommuting to bus rapid transit to light rail - it’s not like we are short of options to reduce our dependence on the car. It seems that Lady Liberty herself may have finally realized this, having ended her 100-year love affair with the car at this year’s autoshow, and in a dramatic move, deciding to marry Mr Alternative Transportation instead. The whole ceremony was, of course, presided over by the one and only Rev. Billy.
