I am not sure there is another country where the whole employed upper middle class drives around in company cars, not being charged extra for the gas they use. Most people I talk to seem to see absolutely no point in saving gas, since it doesn't cost them anything anyway. In fact, once you have a company car, it's cheaper to drive than to take the train, so of course you drive! It's just sad. People are only educated through the wallet. Get rid of this tax break, and don't allow companies to pay in any way for the way to work and back otherwise there's no incentive to share cars or move closer.
