Transportation Brawls of 2010

AltTransport takes a look at the biggest skirmishes in the world of transportation and sustainability that took place over the past calendar year.

AltTransport handicaps the biggest showdowns over transportation:

"Transportation is about more than mode choice, it can be a nasty fight to the death. The winning technology or manufacturer stands to make millions–even billions–while the losers often slink away into obscurity. As America gears up for a transportation revolution, a future in which renewable energy takes center stage, a pit fight is already underway.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood wants to give bikes the same rights as cars, Senate Republicans will fight any climate bill legislation that comes their way, electric cars attempt to squeeze out their gas counterparts and Michael Bloomberg will do everything in his power to give New York back to its pedestrians. While the fights aren't always evenly-matched, they're always entertaining."
