Public Transit orgs: Hey commuters, what do you want most?
Commuters: Better service frequency Transit: Do you want Wi-Fi on all the busses and trains? Commuters: We want more busses and trains Transit: You want RGB accent lights at the stations? Commuters: Just don’t make me wait an hour at that station Transit: How about colour LCD screens displaying the next stop? Commuters: Spend that money on more vehicles! Transit: We could have a McDonald’s right at the platform! Commuters: Fuck it we’ll just drive.

Während die Städte den Autoverkehr zusehends verträglicher regeln, genießt das Kfz auf dem Land, also auf den Bundes-, Landes- und Kreisstraßen samt ihren oft schmalen und kurvigen Ortsdurchfahrten noch weitgehend freie und häufig viel zu schnelle Fahrt. Entsprechend massiv erleben viele Landbewohner die damit einhergehenden Beeinträchtigungen.

I hear news of a train strike upcoming in the USA, how does pro-car culture affect that?
Open question, but here's my reason for asking: I'm aware that the UK [temporarily halted] and Australia also have active train strikes that affect travel. Since the trains are quite widely used by citizens on their ways to and from work, the strikes inevitably make many of the affected people angry due to the inconvenience. So I wonder if USA's notorious anti-public transport norms mean that a train strike will become more of a commercial issue than a personal issue. There has already been concerned industry organizations like the fertilizer one urging the government to make the striking illegal, do you foresee any important anger among the general population over the strikes?

This community exists for the following reasons:

Rules

  1. Be nice to each other. Being aggressive or inflammatory towards other users will get you banned. Name calling or obvious trolling falls under that. Hate cars, hate the system, but not people. While some drivers definitely deserve some hate, most of them didn’t choose car-centric life out of free will.

  2. No bigotry or hate. Racism, transphobia, misogyny, ableism, homophobia, chauvinism, fat-shaming, body-shaming, stigmatization of people experiencing homeless or substance users, etc. are not tolerated. Don’t use slurs. You can laugh at someone’s fragile masculinity without associating it with their body. The correlation between car-culture and body weight is not an excuse for fat-shaming.

  3. Stay on-topic. Submissions should be on-topic to the externalities of car culture in urban development and communities globally. Posting about alternatives to cars and car culture is fine. Don’t post literal car fucking.

  4. No traffic violence. Do not post depictions of traffic violence. NSFW or NSFL posts are not allowed. Gawking at crashes is not allowed. Be respectful to people who are a victim of traffic violence or otherwise traumatized by it. News articles about crashes and statistics about traffic violence are allowed. Glorifying traffic violence will get you banned.

  5. No reposts. Before sharing, check if your post isn’t a repost. Reposts that add something new are fine. Reposts that are sharing content from somewhere else are fine too.

  6. No misinformation. Masks and vaccines save lives during a pandemic, climate change is real and anthropogenic - and denial of these and other established facts will get you banned. False or highly speculative titles will get your post deleted.

  7. No harassment. Posts that (may) cause harassment, dogpiling or brigading, intentionally or not, will be removed. Please do not post screenshots containing uncensored usernames. Actual harassment, dogpiling or brigading is a bannable offence.

Please report posts and comments that violate our rules.
