AVOIDING THE COLLISION OF CITIES AND CARS: URBAN TRANSPORTATION POLICY FOR THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY
This report is intended as a roadmap for transportation policymakers in public and private sectors and as a guide for students and concerned citizens. The first part provides background and identifies the present social concerns raised by automobile use. It proposes a central hypothesis and establishes criteria for assessing policy alternatives. The report makes three sets of recommendations. These include near-term habit-changing strategies, mid-term strategies for changing the vehicle and its fuels and infrastructure, and long-term strategies for changing mobility structures and land-use pattterns. The proposals are mutually reinforcing, and some of the near-term strategies prepare the way for the long-term recommendations. They encourage a diversity of experimentation, depending on local circumstances. The report's concluding section argues that industry, government, and community leaders should work together to implement the report's recommendations.
