@kaniini @Elizafox @kaniini I know and I get that in a lot of places in this shithole country its next to impossible to not own a car, but in all seriousness, there will soon not be anywhere to "adventure outside the urban environment" thanks to cars. I'm not against using motor vehicles for mass transit, emergency services, last mile delivery, and so on, but as personal transportation, cars, along with deforestation and industrial agriculture are going to literally kill us all within the next few decades along with most other life on earth.
They still require high-speed roads that endanger pedestrians and cyclists, those roads still divert tax funds away from mass transit, sidewalk, and cycling lane infrastructure, and those roads also still divide communities.
And the problem is that the car enabled the sprawling suburbs that were created largely out of racism. That racism is still present, and those better alternatives won't be adopted by racists, unless you make them better *FOR THE RACISTS*.
Which you really don't want to do.
We love to post!
