Car Sick: Solutions for Our Car-Addicted Culture (Paperback)Lynn Sloman (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
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-motorisation works: in place of traffic, it offers neighbourly streets and vibrant city centres. Copenhagenis decision to createpedestrian streets in the city centre has made it an outdoor theatre, filled with celebration and spectacle even in winter. From small towns like Langenlois in Austria, to the centre of London, de-motorisation 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. Car Sick is a passionate, well-argued case for moving away from a car-centred to a people-centred society.
