RCPC on traffic and Meadowcreek Parkway
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,
