How Many SUVs Are on Your block?

Thursday, July 26, 2007

We want you to go outside and count the number of SUVs on your block, as well as the number of regular cars.

We’re trying to find out just how much gas-guzzling SUV use there is throughout the New York area, with all the talk of environmental sustainability in the city. We’re giving you until next Thursday to do the counting, but please, just count the cars once. Most trucks and minivans are not SUVs, so we're trusting your judgment. Also, please count the cars on both sides of the block (i.e. the section of your street between intersecting roads).
