Politicians stumble from one transport crisis to the next. Lynn Sloman proposes a novel way forward -- not through the big-bang civil engineering projects, but by getting people to think about their choices, rather than reaching for their car keys. She shows how de-motorization works: in place of traffic, it offers neighborly streets and vibrant city centers. Copenhagen's decision to create pedestrian streets in the city center has made it an outdoor theater, filled with celebration and spectacle even in winter. From small towns like Langenlois in Austria, to the center of London, de-motorization is transforming urban surroundings. We do not need to get rid of cars altogether. What we do need is to change the way we think about travel. - Publisher."@en ;
