RCPC on traffic and Meadowcreek Parkway

traffic-jam

Greeting Comrades! Our issues to discuss today are traffic and the Meadowcreek Parkway. For many years the local politicians have debated on different ways to solve the problems of our roads in Charlottesville. Many of them support the Meadowcreek Parkway (which is currently under construction), but have yet to hear RCPC’s opinion on the subject! A basic outline of our plan is as follows:

1. Limit the number of vehicles in Charlottesville according to the population. This will not only reduce traffic but also reduce pollution of our airways. These vehicles will be publicly owned, and excess vehicles will be sold off (with money going to the RCPC).

2. Each citizen will be allotted a certain amount of time to use these vehicles.  On a special identification card, more details on that coming in a future article, each citizen qualified to drive will be given a certain number of hours/minutes a day to use a public vehicle. This will be kept track of electronically, and unused minutes could be saved up for longer trips. The amount of time will also be determined by the population.

The many benefits from this policy include the aforementioned cut on pollution, reduced traffic, the preservation of McIntire Park,  decreased need for projects like Meadowcreek Parkway, less street noise, and of course equality among citizens in terms of transportation. Money that would have been spent on Meadowcreek parkway could instead be used for better transportation projects like the Peoples’ Bicycle Program. This program will ensure workers equal access to bicycles.  A cleaner, less congested, and fairer future is possible through the RCPC.

Forever fearless and devoted,

Your Leader

We need to spread the word that public ownership of vehicles can solve all car-related problems. Another thing that’s really crazy is how many *clothes* people have… huge walk-in closets full, and they’re buying more all the time, just on whim. When the mass of clothes gets overwhelming, then they rush to give them away to the thrift store, who have so much they throw away most of it. It’s insane. Public ownership of clothes, and clothes sharing (the people who were awake at any given time would wear the same clothes that the sleeping ones would wear eight hours or so later) would solve that problem too.

Struggle!

Wonderful idea! Thank you Roger for your opinion, the RCPC acknowledges the insanity of mindless consumerism. Public ownership of clothes, vehicles, housing, etc. would solve many problems we face today, as well as increase equality.
