As is well known, though, California is a very primitive state.
In a more highly evolved system, the influence of a threatened
surfeit of cars would propagate all the way back to the excess
drivers' initial travel decisions, so that they would either
take the bus, or **stay home**. In this way, the brain
may be superior to the California transportation system. :-/
