Road space is a scarce public good intended to provide access to important locations by the rich and poor alike. As countries get richer, roads get taken over by motorists. Pedestrians and cyclists, whether they are rich or poor, are driven off the roads in fear for their lives. To return our streets to their basic function of equitable access, they need to be redesigned to give priority to those means of travel that use road space more efficiently, cost less, and generate less pollution and noise.
