In my work, I've seen lots of these studies, and so have more info than that little release gives. The moral of the story is that communities need to be built in such ways as to encourage people to walk and bike, in stead of drive everywhere. To do this, things like grocers, shops and schools need to be close enough to get to without driving. Also, less parking makes places prettier in addition to discouraging unnecessary drivers.
