"Americans were actually spending more hours commuting than they got in vacation time."
"[E]xchaning a long commute for a short walk to work has the same effect on happiness as finding a new love."
"[P]eople who endure long drives tend to experience higher blood pressure and more headaches than those with shorter commutes. They get frustrated more easily and tend to be grumpier when they get to their destination."
"People who live in monofunctional, car-dependent neighborhoods outside of urban centers are much less trusting of other people... They are also much less likely to get involved with social groups... They don't answer petitions, don't attend rallies, and don't join political parties or social advocacy groups."
