Can car pooling reduce pollution in our cities?We often see a single individual driving his or her in the big metros. This not only wastes a lot of petrol, but also does not do any justice to the problem of vehicle pollution in our country.
Of course, there have been some voluntary measures taken by individuals who now pool cars. This is all the more common with the private taxi operators like Ola. Since four or five individuals from the same area can go together in one taxi, this is quite feasible.
Why not bring a legislation dictating that on three times a week, cars should carry a minimum of three people? If there is such a law, it will automatically promote lots of friendship and caring and sharing. As such, in the metros, the socialization between people who live in flats and apartments is a big zero. There are instances when they do not even know who the neighbor is.
Can we do something like this?
