Transportation Idea by Tim Clark The reasoning and idea of creating
the Pollution Free-way...
Our world relies too much on fossil fuel to propel ourselves on a daily
basis. Most of our transportation is done in our cars to and from work.
Some people commute 4 hours daily by themselves in their car. = That
is 100 gallons per week = annually 10,000 dollars. This is just one
example, one person... no wonder we are running out of petroleum and
polluting our environment.
I propose creating an alternative freeway system for bikers, skaters
and other self drive vehicles. By creating a highway for the alternative
transit rider, people would have the ability to skate or bike safely
and effectively. This system of transportation would utilize our bodies
to get from place to place in a fun pollution freeway. This would lessen
pollution and offer a safe and fun workout for today’s health consent
Kids more than ever are taking to the streets on their bikes, skateboards,
in-line skates, scooters, and various other rolling devices. Most are
heckled and honked at by cars for being in their way, when they are
just going from A to B conserving our planets resources, enjoying the
ride and getting healthy. Biking, skating, and scooter riding can be
taught in schools along with alternative path rules. Eventually kids
will have the ability to commute to and from school on the alternative
freeway. Pathways would be strategically designed to make the ride safe,
efficient, and enjoyable. The path could have mellow slopes with banked
corners and speed humps to generate speed.
My mission is to continue to research this system and put together findings
that will help open the eyes of people that will in turn support creating
an incial alternative transportation test path to study from and serve
as a model for future alternative pathways. We are fighting a losing
battle to petroleum consumption, carbon pollution, and people eating
cheeseburgers and talking on their cell-phones while driving on crowded
highways. Please consider helping lessen pollution and provide fitness
to communities by creating alternative transportation systems for people
