Study suggests we've hit "peak travel"

greeeeeat. Does that mean its going to get better? Or will they pass laws allowing me to drive through cars going 45mph in the left lane? Because its got to be one of those 2 right?

From the article:

Commuting sucks, no two ways about it. It’s a slog, and a lot of us are saying to hell with it. A study of eight industrialized countries shows passenger travel appears to have peaked in 2003.

The study suggests demand for travel and automobile ownership has reached a saturation point despite predictions, by the International Energy Agency, of 1.5 percent annual growth through 2030. The researchers concede the findings are not conclusive but say they could mean projections of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions will be lower than previously believed.
