    This was during the mid-90s, when my wife worked for the County. He's probably retired by now.

    (I very much support Max, Tri-Met, etc, but that kind of attitude just...well, some people just don't like to be told to do something, "or else." :-)

    Don't let yesterday use up too much of today.

    •  didn't believe positive could sell (0+ / 0-)

      I think there was a certain cynical pessimism to their view (and it was common, not just the dept head) -- you could improve the other modes as much as you liked, but so long as driving was easy and affordable, people just weren't going to choose to bike or walk instead.  Thus, you had to actively make driving less easy and less affordable.  Not unlike Bloomberg and Big Gulps, I guess.
