Can it be this simple?
“If you plan cities for cars and traffic, you get cars and traffic. If you plan for people and places, you get people and places.”
More from the Project for Public Spaces’s transportation program:
“The power of this simple idea is that it reflects basic truths that are rarely acknowledged. One such truth is that more traffic and road capacity are not the inevitable result of growth. They are in fact the product of very deliberate choices that we have made to shape our communities around the private automobile. We as a society have the ability to make different choices — starting with the decision to design our streets as comfortable places for people.”
