>>10726983>Who is arguing against improving cars
For a while, the car companies. Right now, anybody who stands to make a profit off inefficient vehicles. (cough, big oil)
I think it's only very dense urban areas that want an outright ban on cars in favor of public transportation. Big cities can have serious smog problems. Realistically, if they can improve public transportation to a point that cars become obsolete while in the city, then wtf is wrong with banning cars in those cities?
Again, that all hinges on whether they can improve public transportation enough, but if they removed all cars then thats alot of city funding for roads and infrastructure that can be spent on public transportation methods. I think it's one of those situations where when a major city 1st changes the old infrastructure for cars will still exist in many ways, and people will complain, but after a while they'll build up public transportation systems so well that people will never want to go back. You could look at this as akin to growing pains. Like how the everyone in Europe complained about metric when it 1st came out, and now the thought of anything other than metric is reserved for retards and Americans. No offense to Americans, being one myself.
