Cars Are Taking Over the World, Inch By Inch

public space eaten by cars

The appropriation of public space for private use is a problem almost everywhere. In commercial districts you can almost not walk down the sidewalk, and in residential areas fences creep into the road allowances, particularly at corner lots. But I have never seen anything like this- In Sao Paulo, people bending their fences to hang out into the sidewalk to enclose the rears of their cars. We really do let these things take up too much of our planet. From apocalipse motorizado. via Victor at Quintal
