Abstract

Traffic is not good or bad –it’s good and bad. For example, traffic serves stores, restaurants, and cultural organizations. However, traffic, especially vehicular traffic, also causes property damage, personal injury, pollution, illness, and premature death. So, for example, by channeling motor vehicle traffic on expressways and major urban arterials, we are concentrating the bad in some places but also starving other areas of the good. We need to build a more equitable solution to the distribution of traffic’s “goods” and “bads” in urban environments.
