Every workday, over 160 million Americans head for work. A huge proportion head for work in their own private vehicle. They’re running up the mileage of their car, they’re burning what was, until a month ago, very expensive gas (and it’ll likeLY go back up) paying higher insurance rates due to more miles driven and wearing out their tires, including themselves!
Why do we do this? The answer is simple. Habit. Habit: If it’s not resisted, habit soon becomes a COMMANDMENT!
Oregon Cascades West Council of Government’s Transportation Options Outreach Coordinator Tarah Campi is traveling the state trying to convince people it doesn’t have to be this way. Campi is the featured speaker at the Lincoln City Chamber of Commerce Lunch Forum on Friday, February 13th at Surftides Inn, 2945 NW Jetty Avenue.
The presentation is titled “Carpool Karma.” Campi will explain how the program is connecting communities and helping people save money by sharing the ride. She says thousands of dollars in prizes will be awarded when people explore transportation options at DriveLessConnect.com between February 1st and May 1st.
The Chamber luncheon will begin at 11:45am and lunch is $10. The public is always invited to attend Chamber Lunch Forums and should RSVP to the Chamber by calling or emailing the Chamber by 5pm Wednesday, February 11th.
