"Why do some of you hate cars so much?" asks Ford.

I'll answer that one, speaking as one one of the bike riding, downtown walking, two-way streeters here on RtH: I don't hate cars. I love my car ... my SUV, actually: it's shiny, big, bouncy and takes 4x8 sheets of dry wall or two kayaks through the back window.

But I prefer to walk or ride my bike when going about my daily business. I want to be able to do both more often, especially downtown. But the expressways which run through our city makes walking and biking and just _being_ downtown far more unpleasant and awkward than they should be.

Downtowns are for people and shopping and hanging out, not for expressways. We have other ways of driving fast from here to there ... we only have one downtown.
