Social Innovation: Car Sharing will be Big News in the U.S. in 2012

In 2012 car-sharing will become a popular social enterprise initiative in America as more states start to opt in – imagine a world with fewer cars, without traffic jams, and with less pollution. The actual concept of car-sharing is where members have access to a fleet of cars for short-term use throughout the day, which reduces the need for one or more personal vehicles. In California, which passed legislation last year, personal car-sharing is becoming very popular. Next to follow suit is Oregon, which will become the second place to let people rent out their cars.
