CO2 will be produced by an electric car but still a very little amount. It is also possible to use renewable power or a green energy supplier in the electric car. Thus it would lead to less polluted and safe working environment for all of us. However, safety is a big concern with using vehicles. The fluids in the batteries actually take impact better than a fully made gas car because it is not that flammable.
Schools that are simply overcrowded exacerbate the problem because they have to start their lunch periods as soon as two hours after school begins and end the rotating lunch periods only a few hours before the day ends.

Cities have grown so large that a person’s house isn’t anywhere near any type of shopping center so in order to get anywhere they must drive. Modern technology goes hand in hand with residential sprawl. When a person can order just about everything they need from the Internet, why drive all over town?
However, you will most likely arrive at exact destination whereas public transportation will drop you off several blocks away. In addition, though the fare is cheaper than the parking fee, you struggle with the weight of purchases from a mall or grocery store while taking public transportation. In worst-case scenario, you might need to stand up when the carriage is crowded. I remember the last time I had to carry five bags of grocery with both hands while struggling to stand still on a bus. In addition to the humiliation of falling every time the bus pulls over or speeds up, the bus never stopped at my house.
But when you put together both the electric motor and the gasoline motor then you have less pollution. Pollution can result in the air being less dirty from all the gases that can mess up your lungs and get someone sick. Some people buy the hybrid for the money saving. And the gas milage. One reason to buy the hybrid is for traveling or for work.
CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background Population growth is a great concern in urban areas. As the population grows, the number of car also increases and the demand for parking spaces rises. Even though more parking facilities are built, there are still several problems in utilization. A major problem involves the time wasted searching for parking places, which not only causes road congestion and irate drivers searching for empty parking spaces, but has a big negative impact on the environment. Clearly, a solution is needed that will be hassle free for the parking users.
Thus, more driving, more gas use, and more emissions created in the atmosphere. A common response to this from a suburban residential is that the city is jam packed with congestion and pollution from stop and go traffic. Yet with cities, they are more dense, highly populated and many of the stop and go traffic is created by workers who live in the suburbs coming into the city at rush hour. One thing that works well in a typical city is mass transit. Things like buses, subways and train systems work well with block by square block areas, but not so with winding curving neighborhoods such as in suburbs.
Every morning, millions of Americans rely on their cars to carry them safely to work; most, make the journey alive. Drivers today not only have to deal with the road problems of the past like narrow highways, crumbled streets, and wheel-deep potholes, but we must also deal with the effects of a constant growing number of drivers on the road.. Unfortunately, countless lives have been lost on the roads due to people driving too fast, in cars that can’t stand up to today’s road conditions. These caffeine driven speed freaks, weaving their little toy cars, in and out of traffic, during the morning commute, need to find somewhere else to wreck their cars because other people have jobs to be at. As much as people like defending their supped up Scions and Mini Coopers and enjoy blaming accidents and other traffic related issues on other factors, such as poor roads or careless driving, the fact is that cars are no longer a typical, safe means of transportation.
My definition of fast food is a place that has drive through or a sit-down area, inside or outside the building. This is a place where you can get your food in less than five minutes without waiting in huge lines. Some people might consider that fast food is food that you can get at the supermarket or local gas station. I say that this does not classify as fast food because in gas stations there are no places to sit down and eat (most places). In a supermarket you have to stand in a line and checkout.

New York City and the MTA have implemented a new Bus Rapid Transit routes, with more than twenty new lines to link underserved communities. This Rapid Transit system has saved many outer-borough commuters a lot of time and has stimulated the economies of communities the subway does not reach.
