Rita Evacuation from Texas

On my way in, I was hearing on the radio an interview with someone on NPR who said she was tired of the traffic from Houston to Austin, and so was planning to turn around and head back!! This is crazy indeed! You would have thought Katrina taught people to get the hell away from a hurricane. It is also worth asking why it is that people have to evacuate with cars. Can the goverment (state or federal) not provide train or bus services to evacuate large masses of people quickly. Only buses should be allowed to use the carpool lane - that would be incentive enough for people to leave their cars behind and get the heck out!
