The quote was PUBLIC transport, how many buses have you seen with only a few passengers on. In real terms over the course of a day the buses pollute more than cars, also the buses doing greater milages with stop start motering need more servicing which in my opinion is 'sometimes' overlooked causing great gouts of nasty black stuff out of the back.

for public transport to work you would have to have far more busses and trains going to more destinaition, spending more time stopping for 5 mins for everybody to get on them. and person per mile would give out more pollution than if everyone had small engined little diesel cars.

as for doing 0-60 faster than a car, i once had a fiat cinqucento and was going up a steep hill in it. i started to overtake a lorry got about halfway past it trailer then the little fiat didnt have enough power to keep up with the lorry.

Dupe, i believe is in the leisure/travel/tourism game right Dupe?

I don't think thedupleman is expensive to buy but ask nicola about the running costs, I think that could be on the high side, all that bling has to be paid for somehow :D :lol
