This is a long read, but interesting.
With more "young people" moving back toward the city center, I imagine we will start to see some conflict about cars in city limits.
I welcome the coming "War on Cars".
The Cincinnati referendum logically equated high vehicle speeds with increasing danger, a direct affront to the automobile industry. “Think about that for a second,” Norton says. “If you're in the business of selling cars, and the public recognizes that anything fast is dangerous, then you've just lost your number-one selling point, which is that they're faster than anything else. It’s amazing how completely the auto industry joined forces and mobilized against it.”
“Motordom,” as the collective of special interests including oil companies, automakers, auto dealers, and auto clubs dubbed itself, launched a multi-pronged campaign to make city streets more welcoming to drivers, though not necessarily safer. Through a series of social, legal, and physical transformations, these groups reframed arguments about vehicle safety by placing blame on reckless drivers and careless pedestrians, rather than the mere presence of cars.
"Besides, if we don’t stop and reverse climate change, all we’ll have left to eat – if we’re lucky – is fish. Whoops – looks like we’re running out of fish, too."
