Cars in India meet 5% of travel demand, occupy 75% of the roads

Hitting The Poor, Pampering The Rich - Kashmir Times: "Cars are the most inefficient, expensive and polluting mode of road transport ever invented. In India, their ownership is under 10 for every 1,000 people. Yet they occupy the lion's share (75 percent) of road space but meet only about 5 percent of the travel demand. Buses, by contrast, occupy 5-7 percent of space but deliver 45-60 percent of commuter trips. "
