Not sure what the deal is? Why are so many Hybrid (selfish) owners here? This is for Sluggers and people who want to know more about slugging. Since a 99% of you do not want to use the slug alternative, why are you here?

I am not going to argue any of the MPG and the tax breaks for buying a Hybrid. Nor do I want to hear about the maintain ace costs! What I want to hear about is how you are really trying to take more cars off the roads. How can we as a society, work on getting out of this transportation mess we are in. Somehow saying single Passenger Hybrids is the answer does not stand merits. I only create more problems.

What happens during the summer months when the temp is 95+, you are going to turn on the A/C, what happens then to your gas mileage you so righteously tout? Ever think about how much energy your satellite radio and cell phone charger take away from the batteries? Maybe not a lot, maybe a lot I really do not know or care. What I care about is you trying to take over HOV-3 and making my commute longer.

Get your own damn website and live your fantasy there. Do not come here and tout your fantasy to us, who stand in the cold lines waiting for people who care about the transportation issues. The 1% of you hybrid owners who come pick up slugs or carpool, I say Thank you for caring and not being selfish.

It'd be nice if the hybrid owners would help with commuting. If gas mileage is really a plus on hybrids, what's the problem with taking a couple of passengers going the same way?
When I'm riding in a car that struggles to make it up to 55 mph and I see a single driver in a hybrid, I think: why couldn't that guy have given us a ride in that hybrid that is going the same way?
Selfishness.........

duckduffer - the reason I post on here is because this site was used as a source for Washington Post articles. I know most slugs prefer EVERYONE to agree with them and do whatever they can to squash dissenting views, but at least reporters can see that not everyone agrees with free loading, selfish (I got mine, screw everyone else), unwilling to use public transportation, non-environmentally aware persons.

And just who do you think you are to judge me like that? The Slug process is a something that both benefits the drivers and slugs. People need to drive and people need a ride. Not all of us can afford 300-400 a month for Mass Transit. When I drive I pick up slugs, when I do not drive I slug. If you donít like the process, donít come here and bash it, okay!

And just what Wash Post article are you talking about? Are you too selfish to go spend your 35 cents and pay for the Post.. Screw us and get your information for free?

Ever comment I have read has bashed me and I frankly am sick of you. Please take your rude comments and go create your own web site!

How do you commute to work?

NoSUV drives a hybrid on his way to the car dealership where he sells overpriced hybrids to "selfish (I got mine, screw everyone else), unwilling to use public transportation, non-environmentally aware persons."

He sold me mine so I could SOV up/down the HOV lanes.

NoSb

SOV because you can, HOV because you care!

So why doesn't Mr. Everyone Use Mass Transportation using FRED to get to work? Afraid he might have to stand out in cold and wait for FRED to pick him up?
Like to know if NoSUV is brave enough to state what Car Dealership he works at?

I don't work for a car dealership = never have. Check my previous posts and I state quite clearly that I purchased my hybrid before accepting a position in this region.

NoSB is unwilling to help solve environmental problems today, in terms of global warming, pollution, and fuel consumption by buying something that is better - waiting instead for the "perfect" solution. And in the meantime, bashing anyone who does try to make a difference. NoSB would have more credibility if non-commuting miles were environmentally sound - in my hybrid, ALL my miles pollute less and use less fuel. How many annual miles are you putting on your gas guzzler that are not with a car pool?

NoSUV - Are you posting your remarks from your job? ARe you a Gov't employee? If you are then thanks for wasting my tax dollars! After all you have a lot of posts. Also, this is a web site for slugging not for Hybrid Owners. So get off of our Slugging message board.

Theres a lot more people can do for the environment than driving or not driving a hybrid.

NoSUV,
You forget that the biggest way to help the environment is to put more people in less cars. You seem to oppose that unless you are exempted.

Dear Beckie and others who are telling hybrid owners to go away,

You are in a special section of the Slug Line message board labeled Hybrids. What better place for a discussion of hybrids?

Here, take two "DUHs" and see you in the general discussion area.




Kindest Regards,

mroyal
