One of the funniest scenes in the Steve Martin / John Candy 1987 movie Planes, Trains, and Automobiles is when Candy's clumsy and awkward character falls asleep while driving, and then manages to drive back up the ramp onto the interstate. He's driving awhile and then notices a car on the other side of the median driving beside him--in the same direction.
"You're going the wrong way!!!" the people in the other car scream at the top of their lungs.
"He's drunk," Candy's character muses.
"How would HE know where we're going?"
In this month's edition with a focus on transportation, a lot of the sources we talked to agree that "We need to do something" (as our FRONTcover model quipped). And in many cases, we ARE heading in the right direction.
Whether that is happening at the pace we prefer or not is another issue. But it's certainly good news when we're not going the wrong way.
