Why The Automobile is Moribund


The automobile is moribund because they dictate the design of our environment and our environment is unsustainable
We need to move toward greater concentrations of population living economically in secure environments that are mainly walkable
Work and home need not be in the same place but should be within the boundaries of  living area
Today's zoning is sadly subservient to the car
The cost of cars and fuel will become prohibitive
Motor vehicle casualties and deaths worldwide compete with wars and epidemics but are largely ignored
Car free communities could come into existence with little effort but would generate many new jobs and industries
Car free communities could be the basis of a huge global economy as the oil runs out or becomes prohibitively expensive
