Anyone who can conveniently walk, bike or use public transit will likely already be doing so. Those who go to the considerable expense ow ownership and use of a car must be granted the presumption of having considered the alternatives. It is presumptuous for anyone to denigrate that choice by others or to deem the convenience of others to be unworthy of concern. I recall when Willie Brown, mayor of Frisco, made his jesture of riding muni while his limo trailed behind. Why not start, Frank, by surrendering your reserved parking spot and joining the herd?
