There was an article in the NY Times yesterday about European cities aiming to reduce the number of cars by making it hard for them to use personal vehicles. By far the most striking quote of the article was from Pio Marzolini, “… I can’t get used to the idea that I am worth less than a car.” Even in my town, which is extremely pedestrian friendly for it’s size and location in the US, I often feel like if I could just *talk* to the people whizzing past me in cars, they might consider getting out of them and enjoying the fresh air. For the full article, go here.
How would you react if your current town or city made it harder for you to drive everyday? Would you complain to the government or take it as an opportunity to get some fresh air?
