      Regarding your question, "Do any learnered individuals
      on this list have advice about how to influence & win
      over pollies?"--

      Yes, humiliate them in the media. Point out that the
      day means giving people a chance to meet their
      neighbors, enjoy themselves outdoors without fear of
      being run over, etc. etc., and what in that is so
      objectionable to politicians? Or do they love cars
      more than voters?

      Of course, first you have to find a media channel
      willing to publish your views.
