No Shit Sherlock.
"The Dublin Transportation Office has announced new plans to encourage people to help solve the traffic problem by leaving the car at home more often.
The message is if those who live and work in the greater Dublin area were to use alternative means to travel to work at least once a week, it would go a long way.
As part of the One Small Step Pedometer Challenge over 1,000 employees from 17 firms will be walking some of the world's highest peaks without leaving their offices."
Great! So what are the new plans? Let hear 'em. Does it involve transporter beams? Hover boards??
I walked to the gym to day. My jeans are still soaked. If I was walking to work I wouldn't want to sit around in soggy clothes all day long. And public transport is dandy, except when it's raining, then it gets later and busier and hit and miss. I remember standing at a bus stop and watching buses go by without stopping. Some routes are better than others, but it can be painful to rely on public transport in Dublin's fair city.
DId I mention the rain? It rains in Ireland, A LOT. Velly wet it is. Would you walk to work in the rain? Would you be willing to walk BACK from work, after a long day, in the rain.
Wonder what these new plans are? What 'alternative means' are they referring to?
