This comic has been making the rounds across the internet recently, and sparks a really interesting discussion about how we use our streets and spaces for people. There are two messages that this comic sends:
- We have handed over a lot of space to cars; and
- Streets might as well be impassible valleys for pedestrians.
But just how should our streets be organized? Is it reasonable to say that streets ought to be oriented around cars only at the explicit cost of others like pedestrians? Or should we be creating streets that give equitable consideration to all modes?
