Speed and distance of travel, safety. These supposed benefits that the car has over walking or bicycles were created by the car itself. So the auto is a poser, it's created its own benefits to promote its use and convince us how great it is. Then, of course people will say that we are stuck with them and it's unrealistic to try to change that. Yet there are changes made every day, that's how we got here. There is no good reason to not start changing the city landscape and auto infrastructure.
