But…. look at all the controversy and problems. The solution is a trade off of potential housing congestion and affordability for less cars on the California Highways. No matter what the outcome, we still have a much better solution. Much quicker too.
Something we can do right now
Give a full tax credit for the full purchase price of an electric mobility vehicle (no… not another electric car) to any California resident who takes a car off the road and uses an electric bike, trike, Segway, skate board or any other personal mobility vehicle to commute to and from work. Get rid of the car, buy the eBike and get it for free. Well, at least get it as a deduction on your taxes.
Open some lanes on the freeway and limit them to personal eMobility vehicles only and there it is. No need for anyone to move their home- no need for more congestion. Healthier people too. Maybe a lot of happier people too.
What’s that- Happiness you say? Yep- check out Mark Dekker’s experience in a country that has been there and done that.
