Eight Problems with Cars in the US

1. Traffic: From 1950 to 1970, the U.S. automobile population grew four times faster than the human
population. As a result, we Americans spent nearly 500,000 years stuck in traffic in 2007 - nearly 4.2
billion hours.

2. Cars Kill Children: The leading cause of death for children aged 5 to 14 in New York City is
pedestrian automobile accidents.

3. Cars Kill Animals: Automobiles, SUVs, trucks, and other fossil field-burning vehicles kill a million
wild animals per week in the U.S. - not counting tens of thousands of family pets.
