cars on the road by car type so if you drive a certain car type like a toyota you will have one day on the road but if you drive a certain car type like an audi which has more car ownership you'll have to share the road with other cars it's come to that point where we're just trying to find solutions to this problem but these solutions missed the mark you're not going to be able to address man in a traffic and less we have better mass transportation solutions that will lessen the cars on the road but on to those solutions governor force and i want a bought people playing in trying to find solutions do they have some responsibility to be able to solve this problem in the interim onto them. that's a really difficult i mean that's a really different question brash because there are so limited public transportation options as one person told you know they wish they could sometimes
