Car Pooling Tips, Part Two

Carpooling is one of the best solutions to the problem of expensive gas and is an excellent air pollution solution. Like any other venture that involves the participation of other people, you may need to agree on some things in advance in order to keep things running smoothly. A car pool can remove three to four vehicles from the road per day, and you'll want to continue this personal step in air pollution control for as long as possible. To do so, try some of the following:

1. Agree in advance how gas expenses will be split among the car pool members.

2. Decide in advance whether one person will do all the driving, or if the duties will be shared.

3. If driving duties are to be shared, agree ahead of time whether one vehicle will be used, or if carpool members will volunteer their vehicles.

Agree in advance to these terms and you will save yourself a lot of hassle. Carpooling is an excellent air pollution prevention technique, but it only works if you approach it with the forethought needed to make such a group effort work properly.
