“The entrenched system takes an enormous amount of money to keep it going. There’s about 100 million new cars sold every year, with an average price around $25,000. That’s, right there, $2.5 trillion. If we just carved out some percentage of that, even if it were 2% or 3%, [it would] move us in a different direction, and improve our sustainability. It would be huge, but we’re not even willing to do that”—Lew Fulton, co-director at the STEPS program of the UC Davis Institute of Transportation Studies.
