Common sense says we should limit our air pollution on hot days. Why are there so many cars on the road today?

Sounds great in theory, to have less cars on the road and if we could plan say for 6 weeks in advance when the temperatures are going to get hot, we may be able to plan around it.

I had to drive today to a meeting that was planned several weeks ago and many of the people at the meeting came from various areas of the South Bay and Peninsula. Carpooling, public transport and bikes were not an option for many reasons. Now, if we had known we could have had the meeting last week when it was cooler!!!!

Life has to go on in the heat. People still have to live their lives. The world does not stop every time there is a "Spare the Air Day". And in our home, it is too hot to cook and if we can't use the grill outside the only option is to eat out - probably by driving!
