IMPEACHING THE CAR: AN ASSESSMENT OF THE POTENTIAL FOR SUSTAINABLE URBAN TRANSPORTATION

This paper begins with an introduction on the extent of automobile dependency in the developed world, particularly in North American cities. It then summarizes the various problems associated with such a reliance, including environmental impacts, economic costs, social impacts, and the need for infrastructure. The paper also assesses a number of alternative modes of transport as well as strategies to reduce automobile usage, such as integrating alternative modes at the urban planning stage. Finally, the paper discusses the elements required for more sustainable urban transport practices to occur.
