You probably aren't using a good viewing spot to determine how many people use their SUVs to transport more than just the driver.
If people were using their SUVs to drop off the kids on the way to school, then I would imagine that when the driver got to their final destination the odds of being the only person in the car would be pretty high.

My wife frequently goes to the gym after dropping off the kids at school. A lot of people see her with only one person in the car but that one spot doesn't really show all of the ways the car is getting used.

IE8 Will Contain an Accidental Ad Blocker
I just put sticky notes over very top and the very right side of the monitor. That covers most ads.
