    And they make the roads less safe for people like me who drive little Corollas.

    I re-did my website! See how pretty DailyGranola.com is now.

    •  Subsidies for the Rich (4.00)
      Chris is exactly right, the highways are heavily subsidized while the railroads are left with nothing.  Transportation funding in the US is approximately this:

      90%  Highways and roads

      6%  Airports and Air traffic control

      4% for trains, light rail, bike lanes, etc- let the poor ride bicycles!

      I would gladly commute by bicycle if there were safe riding conditions, in the meantime the Prius will have to do.
