11 traffic steps towards a brighter city

Change traffic, develop the smiling city
This blog TrafficLogistics has shown a way forward for our cities; a priority system in congested periods of the day; priority given to service and industry and buses. Commuters from outside the city will in that time period go by bus or train, but;  each car-owner will be give a number of free passing tickets enabling cars to go right into the city in case of urgent needs (job, hospital etc).

Don't want this ugly city!

"Må" vi bygge motorveier i sentrale strøk?

Tid for ny transportpolitikk
Vi "må" selvsagt ikke bygge motorveier i sentrale strøk. Vi "må" selvsagt ikke legge til rette for mer biltrafikk, = les privatbiltrafikk. Se f.eks. amerikanske artikkel i dag på min blog her om arealbruk pga biltrafikk. Vil vi det egentlig? Hvis vi ikke vil, hvorfor gjør vi det da? Politikere og samferdselsbyråkrater tør vel ikke tenke annerledes, enda så mye dokumentasjon vi har på alle ulempene ved bilbruk. Kan vi ikke SI AT NOK ER NOK; LA NYTTETRAFIKK, DVS. DISTRIBUSJONSKJØRETØY MED VARER, SERVICE, BUSSER, MV FÅ BRUKE VEIKAPASITET I RUSHTIDSPERIODER, OG LA OSS ANDRE MATPAKKEPENDLERE BRUKE BUSS OG TOG.

I thought the following report could wake somebody?:

"500 Square Miles Lost to New Jersey Sprawl Over 20 Years

by Noah Kazis
New development in New Jersey's Warren County. The last decade has often been heralded as a "back to the cities" moment, a time when Americans have been excited to return to the walkable lifestyle many abandoned two generations before. A new report from New Jersey's Rutgers and Rowan Universities throws a little cold water on that optimism, though, pointing out that even the most densely populated state in the Union sprawls further out into the countryside every year.

Member blog Garden State Smart Growth picks out some of the report's lowlights:
Between 2002 and 2007, New Jersey’s rate of land development significantly outstripped population growth: population increased by only 1.1 percent, but the amount of developed land increased by 5.3 percent, nearly five times faster…
Since 1986, when these land-use data were first produced, the state’s development footprint has expanded by more than 25 percent, consuming an additional 323,809 acres, or about 500 square miles — an area larger than Cumberland, Monmouth or Morris counties

That's the price you pay for transportation and land use policies that make the car king: the loss of your open space, forests, and farmland. Garden State Smart Growth also points the finger at New Jersey's fragmented, hyper-local planning process as a contributor to the state's sprawl:
