I chose E as well.

Research indicates THAT is correct. A & B gone.

C is wrong because "nor having made" is wordy.

D is wrong because "significantly" and "not making" are not parallel.

I picked D. somehow thought the 'or made' in E didn't sound right. looking at it now, they both seem correct. whats the problem with D? change in tense??

E Looks good.

Read it like this...

that few people
have significantly reduced the amount of driving they do
or (have) made.

I would go for E as my answer.

A is awkward with the use of "to have significantly reduced'
B has the same problem with "having significantly reduced"
C 'there are' (few people) seems redundant in this passage
D By using 'making', the sentence is not parallel with 'reduced'
E is the best. It does not have redundant use of words, and is parallel

E is the most idiomatic and paralled expression.
