Cutting traffic by half, carpooling is the key!

(PresseBox) (Bonn,, ) Bonn, Germany-August 4, 2008: The Olympics is near, the air is still unclear. Odd one day, even the next. Why not offer carpooling services as an alternative way of reducing air pollution? Beijing is cutting down their traffic by a half, meaning approximately 1.5 million from 3 million vehicles are cut everyday in order to have a crystal clear air during the Olympics.

This cut is made by the alteration of license plate, odd license plates are allowed to be driven one day and even license plates the other. Using this method, Beijing has increased public transportation. The increase of public transportation may not be sufficient for all those who left their cars at home. It may also not be preferred for some to use public transportation. Establishing a carpooling platform may be the solution.

With oil prices constantly increasing, carpooling is a cheaper way of transportation in comparison to driving individual cars. In addition, carpooling is more convenient when driving in heavy traffic; it reduces stress. Furthermore, it is more efficient for the reason that it reduces energy consumption, pollution due to auto emissions and traffic congestion. This offer may also ease the method of the alteration of odd and even license plates.
