85 Years of Traffic Engineering Revolving Around the Car Has Failed Miserably

Mikael Colville-Andersen: Engineers are brilliant problem solvers. They just need to be told which problems to solve. They are rarely leaders. They are the Can Do team. If we design a city properly, they will make it work. But as it is now, we are living in The Matrix, because traffic engineering goes unchecked and unctriticised.
