The Second Hand Smoke of the Driving Citizen

 

By Dom Nozzi

In an urban to rural transect, suburbs are drivable (and private spaces are emphasized) and town centers are walkable (and public outdoor spaces are important).

The higher speeds and larger asphalt spaces degrade the quality of life in the town center portion of the transect.
