Abstract:

Every day our cities are swamped with a logjam of cars, trucks, and buses. Behind this chaos, though, lies a master plan which struggles to keep the modern city on the move. This program explores the age-old battle between the city and its traffic as we follow a colorful London cabby on his journeys throughout the city. The program explains the origin of traffic signals, examines the American grid plan, speaks to the man responsible for all traffic management in London, visits Scotland Yard's Traffic Control Center, and follows the London cabby back in time to contrast traffic and planning in Victorian London with today's city.
