The 2007 Growth and Transportation Survey, sponsored by the National Association of Realtors and Smart Growth America, reveals some interesting results:
75% of those polled said that improving public transportation and building communities that don’t require as much driving were better long-term solutions for reducing traffic. Only 21% said that building new roads provided the best solution.
…Nearly 90% believe new communities should b designed so we can walk more and drive less…
At 84% against, Americans are overwhelmingly opposed to the privatization of public roads and highways.
