A suburb without cars

Vauban editedCheck out this interesting story in today’s New York Times about a German town called Vauban, which the Times says “may be the most advanced experiment in low-car suburban life.”
A suburb without cars? Oh, the horror! Those poor folks have to walk or ride bikes!

    This is what we need more of in the good, old US of A. First we need decent public transportation systems that people would want to use. I like what Britain did….

    “Britain began a comprehensive effort to reform planning, to discourage car use by requiring that new development be accessible by public transit. Dozens of shopping malls, fast-food restaurants and housing compounds have been refused planning permits based on the new British regulations.”

    Keep up the great blog work Dad. Love, Ben
