As traffic grinds to a halt in most of the major cities of the developed world, at enormous environmental and economic cost, this book examines the many alternatives to the unregulated use of private cars. The belief of many planning committees that everyone that drives is shown to be both fallacious and dangerous, leading inevitably to the blighting of inner cities as leisure and shopping facilities move to the urban fringes. Brian Richards shows how a range of techniques involving land-use planning, alternative mass-transit systems such as light railways, busways and traffic restraint, many already in use around the world, can lead to a major environmental improvements, making cities places to enjoy.
