    Why doesn’t the city take the POV car drivers to task for their environmental impact on the city’s abilities to meet ambitious cap goals? Make car drivers buy an effluent discharge permit for their vehicles to be in this city-that way a city utility can build an effective system to clean up the stormwater that drains into the Sound. Also, make car drivers pay for all parking of vehicles on public property (residential streets). The cars are privately owned, the city belongs to the public-why allow city space to subsidize car drivers in neighborhoods? We need transit and water garden grids for Seattle, not a future of car pollution and gridlock.
