WE SHOULD BE BUILDING CITIES FOR PEOPLE, NOT CARS

TACTICAL, CONCENTRATED IMPROVEMENTS HAVE AN OUTSIZED IMPACT
It is feasible — both financially and politically — to make cities more walkable. Simple, low-cost improvements to features like painted bike lanes, wayfinding signs, curb cuts, and tree coverage have an disproportionate impact in transforming a car-dependent metropolis into human-scale, walkable neighborhoods. It is rare that cities find a goal that is both worthwhile and attainable, so urban planners should jump on this opportunity.
