Buckle up and get comfortable. This will be a bit of a journey.
We recently became aware of a fascinating thread on the ITE (Institute of Transportation Engineers) Member Forum titled, “A ‘War on Cars’? Let there be Peace!” Access to the Forum is restricted, but we were able to capture much of the debate and share it with you below.
The original post is from a die-hard Vision Zero proponent. Don’t let it deter you from reading on; it is the stage-setter for an interesting discussion that provides us with a glimpse at the thinking of true VZ believers as well as solid counterarguments by others from the same engineering community. Both viewpoints are valuable to us as we continue the fight against policies designed to restrict drivers and driving freedoms in favor of lesser — much lesser — used modes of transportation such as walking and bicycling.
If you are involved in multi-modal transportation planning or transportation demand management programs, you may have been accused of waging a “war on cars.” The following column, posted on the Planetizen website, critically evaluates these claims.
There is no “war on cars.” Everybody, including motorists, benefit from a more diverse and efficient transportation system. Let there be peace!
- What critics call a war is simply more multi-modal planning that improves transport options and incentives for travelers to use the most efficient mode for each trip.
- Current demographic and economic trends are increasing demand for non-auto travel. Multi-modal planning responds to these consumer demands and community needs.
- In most communities, walking, bicycling, and public transit receive less than their fair share of road space and funding.
- Motor vehicle user fees only finance about half of total roadway costs. Local roads and most parking facilities are financed through general taxes and subsidies that residents pay regardless of how they travel, so households that drive less than average tend to subsidize the automobile facility costs of their neighbors who drive more than average.
- Credible research indicates that pedestrian and bicycle improvements increase use of these modes and reduce total traffic crashes, including risks to motorists.
- Bicycle facility improvements allow but do not require people to bicycle. Motorists also benefit form multi-modal planning, which reduces their congestion delays, accident risks, and chauffeuring burdens.
- Current policies result in huge parking subsidies, totaling thousands of dollars annually per motor vehicle. This is perverse: It forces many lower-income people to subsidize the parking costs of affluent motorists and encourages dangerous driving. Parking mandates are a fertility drug for cars.
- Multi-modal planning tends to increase our freedom and opportunities overall.
- Multi-modal planning creates healthier, happier, “free range” children, and reduces parents’ chauffeuring burdens.
- Excessive parking requirements encourage drunk driving and discourage development of neighborhood restaurants, bars, and pubs.
- No, traffic engineers are not conspiring to delay traffic.
- Much criticism of multi-modal planning and complete streets is inaccurate, exaggerated or unfair. Abundant research indicates that they make communities overall safer, healthier, more affordable and inclusive, less polluting and more economically successful than automobile-dependent planning.
- Bicyclists are not all irresponsible scofflaws. They tend to violate traffic laws at about the same rate as motorists.
I hope this information is useful to transportation professionals facing inaccurate, exaggerated or unfair criticism.
Great column! I appreciate the directness [with which] you address each claim. I support your argument that automobile travel is subsidized by other modal travel because of its high costs, perverse incentives, outsized externalities, and insufficient use fees. I’ve already share the article with several people.
One comment, and maybe you were strategically treading lightly in light of recent Vision Zero discussion, I would expand the traffic violence aspect of automobile dependency. According to the World Health Organization, road traffic deaths and injuries are the 8th leading cause of death for people of all ages, and the leading cause of death for children and young adults 5-29 years of age. Traffic violence, like pollution and sprawl, is a characteristic of automobile use that proponents of automobiles would rather ignore. Multi-modal transportation is integral to giving people safety and the freedom of choice in their mobility in order to participate in society.
I’m not sure we want to put wind behind the sails of this traffic violence spin. It is spin and it is intended to provoke a response, so my response is that using the term violence is loaded and in some way assumes intent. War, crime, etc., are examples. Violence: “behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something.” Any legal expert will tell you that intent is one of the hardest things to prove so do we really want to go throwing around the term “traffic violence?” I hope you and others will give it further consideration and/or help me understand how you think using such spin will be helpful to transportation betterment.
Violence is a noun that absolutely implies intent…and if you choose to modify the noun violence with traffic as the adjective, you and others are absolutely choosing to use these words to elicit a desired response.
Some note that, “The truth is that even though traffic violence is usually unintentional, it is preventable.” This is a patently false statement. How would you prevent a drunk driver from barreling through a red light or driving off the road and hurting himself or others, or how would you prevent someone from having a catastrophic stroke while driving and wiping out a poor pedestrian on a wheelchair on a sidewalk? How would you prevent drunk or inattentive pedestrians from running into the street or otherwise crossing where they aren’t expected, such as between parked cars, and being struck?
These are only a handful of the accidents I have reviewed in an effort to evaluate what I can do as a professional in the transportation field to improve safety for citizens. Are these “traffic violence” incidents preventable…perhaps arguably so…but not by anything you or I can design or influence, short of removing the car, motorcycle/vehicle from the equation. Hence the perception of the “war on cars.”
I do not wish to steer this discussion away from the topic, but those who think they can legislate, mandate, or design away all the inherent danger from any activity we do on a day-to-day basis, let alone activities that mix pedestrians, bicyclists or any other infrastructure/roadway users with moving vehicles are fooling themselves, and worse misleading the public. There is no room for that in our industry, and I, for one, don’t want to live in the kind of sterile world that would be required to achieve what you espouse.
There are too many valuable perspectives in the ITE Member Forum thread to fit into one newsletter, so if you got a bit riled after these first few posts, be sure to look for Transportation Engineers Debate Vision Zero, Part 2 next week to further bolster your faith in the traffic engineering community.

Vision Zero means Zero Freedoms
Beyond the above, these vision Zero statements miss the point entirely. The real need is infrastructure for a growing population. This includes not just fixing roads and bridges, but building additional roads, two-tiered roads, additional lanes for more cars and a growing population. We should take a pro-active stance for making the population more comfortable while driving, having more fun and more able to travel. The other side seems anxious to attack, ban and regulate everything. They are missing the point.
As a longtime supporter of the American Cancer Society, I have seen and acknowledged the need for funding cancer
research for the development of a cure.
But, beyond research, there’s another unforeseen roadblock that many cancer patients face – a lack of transportation to
treatment. This causes patients to delay necessary medical care and put their health at risk.
Today, I’m asking you to join me in participating in Drive 1000, which is raising funds to provide 1000 much-needed rides for local cancer patients.
This will only be possible if we as a community #giveback.
To jump-start the Drive 1000 campaign, I’m donating $5,000.
Together, let’s raise the additional $20,000 – because even the best treatment won’t work if a cancer patient can’t get there.
Please join us by donating to Drive 1000 here today: https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/drive1000
I will also sponsor the American Cancer Society’s Champions of Hope Gala again on Friday, November 8, 2019.

Biketoberfest 2019 Traffic & Safety Tips
DBPD motors badge 488 x 450
Biketoberfest 2019 – the 27th annual edition of the fall motorcycle rally in the Daytona Beach area – begins October 17th (Thursday) and continues until October 20th (Sunday).
To ensure a safe environment where residents and visitors can move with a minimum of traffic issues, please make a special note of the following:
Those wishing to enter or leave beachside are encouraged to use the Seabreeze/Oakridge Boulevard or International Speedway Boulevard bridges.
Excessive noise from loud pipes is prohibited by Florida law and Daytona Beach city ordinance. Violations will be enforced!
Motorcycles must have mufflers by state law and city ordinance. Violations will be enforced!
A “Motorcycles Only” pattern will be in effect for Main Street. Other vehicles will be directed elsewhere or must receive special permission to access.
Motorcyclists arriving and leaving festival areas via residential streets should proceed with extra caution due to pedestrian traffic.
Police will enforce designated residential/decal parking restrictions in specific areas, especially on beachside. Check for signage before you park!
It may be necessary to restrict traffic on the Main Street Bridge during peak event times to facilitate movement of emergency vehicles.
We are anticipating around 125,000 visitors to the area during this year’s rally. Most of them will be in these areas, especially at night.
Side street traffic heading north/south between Auditorium Boulevard and Harvey Street may be restricted during events on Main Street. Affected roadways will include:
Wild Olive Street
In order to ensure traffic flow, special traffic patterns may go into effect for motorcycle riders who want to access Main Street. Those are as follows:
Atlantic Avenue/State Road A1A:
NORTHBOUND: Turn left (west) on International Speedway Boulevard and then right (north) on Peninsula Drive. Please avoid trying to turn left (west) onto Main Street from Atlantic Avenue.
SOUTHBOUND: Go to the right lane. Upon reaching Main Street, you may be able to turn right (west), depending on the amount of traffic. If not, continue south and turn right (west) on International Speedway Boulevard, then turn right (north) on Peninsula Drive.
NORTHBOUND: Remain on Peninsula Drive until you get to Main Street, then turn right (east).
SOUTHBOUND: Turn left (east) on Oakridge Boulevard to Atlantic Avenue, then turn right (south) and head to Main Street.
NORTH BEACH STREET
There will be motorcycle-only parking on selected areas of North Beach Street. These areas will be clearly marked by signage.
Expect heavy traffic around Indian Motorcycle Company (290 North Beach Street).
DR. MARY MCLEOD BETHUNE BOULEVARD (MMB)
Eventgoers can use any of the major roadways intersecting with MMB.
Public parking areas may be restricted to assist with pedestrian safety and vehicle movement during events.
Side streets near the 800 block of MMB will be restricted and/or closed to assist with spectator safety.
DAYTONA INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY
We are not anticipating any major traffic concerns in this area, but minor traffic patterns may be implemented to assist with inbound and outbound traffic.
Signage will be clearly posted directing spectators to all events on Speedway property.
What a time to be alive — literally.
By nearly every measurement, from child mortality and life expectancy to poverty and education, quality of life around the globe is better than it’s ever been. In much of the world, subsistence living is a thing of the past and humanity is flourishing — especially those with ready access to electricity.
The Industrial Revolution, when an unprecedented boom of technological innovation transformed agrarian America into the nation we know today, wasn’t just a time of economic change and scientific progress. It propelled humanity to the most prosperous time in our history.
Once a rare treasure, electricity now powers everything we touch. It provides the essentials like clean running water and warmth in the winter and the luxuries like Instagram and Amazon Prime. It powers the institutions we depend on: Our banks, law enforcement agencies, doctor’s offices, farms, plants, stores, and schools. Similarly, affordable and dependable cars allow us to travel freely, farther, and more often than our ancestors could have fathomed, giving us the ability to do business over long distances and travel for mere pleasure.
Not everyone in the world enjoys these benefits. Nearly a billion people still don’t have access to electricity or any of the benefits that come along with it. These are communities where medieval-sounding diseases like cholera and dysentery still reign — where life expectancies lag 20 to 30 years behind those of the developed West.
Lest we think this fate is reserved for the third world, Venezuela represents a cautionary tale on the consequences of losing the precious resource that is electricity. In March, a week-long blackout in Venezuela left more than 40 people dead because hospitals couldn’t provide basic medical care, including routine procedures like dialysis. Even now, electricity and critical healthcare infrastructure are spotty at Venezuelan hospitals, leading one doctor to turn pregnant patients away and send them instead to neighboring Colombia.
These are the dangers we should be worried about — real threats to human health and safety — not the overblown dangers of slightly warmer weather.
For all the environmentalist movement’s hand-wringing, you’d think our extinction was scheduled to commence tomorrow. But despite the wildly popular and equally wildly misinterpreted trope that all scientists agree the world is ending, there is no concrete evidence right now to suggest climate change will be anything but mild and manageable, or that we won’t be able to handle it.
Humans are becoming more resilient to mild changes in average temperature. Migration trends show Americans are readily moving to warmer states. Even more crucially, deaths due to climate-related natural disasters have declined by a providential 98.9%. That is thanks to our modern-day technology, which allows meteorologists to more accurately predict storm patterns and near-instant communication keeping the public better informed and prepared. It’s the reason the Great Galveston Storm of 1900 claimed more 8,000 lives, but a recent storm of similar magnitude on the Texas coast — Hurricane Harvey — killed just 68. We can and should work to improve disaster readiness, but we should do so without the fear-mongering.
Given how much society has transformed since the Industrial Revolution, the potential of future generations to spread the health and prosperity we enjoy around the world should be limitless.
Yet climate change hysteria is plaguing an entire generation with a crippling fear of the future. Not only is foisting this burden on today’s children and young adults unhealthy — it’s simply unfair to limit the younger generation’s potential to contribute to the innovations that will drive the future. Young leaders should be empowered to pursue their passions and encouraged to experiment with new solutions, just as the greatest innovators of the past have done.
We live in the healthiest, most prosperous, most resilient time in human history. It is unfortunate that climate alarmists can’t see how far we’ve come — or how bright humanity’s future can be.
