Wow, five people downvoted Capitalist's last post? Personally, I thought it was rational and civil. I don't usually vote on posts, but I upvoted that one.

I brought up the RHVP not out of pure spite but to make the specific point that a car-centric transportation infrastructure is no more inherently free-market or fiscally responsible than an infrastructure built around alternate modes of transportation. Sean kindly provided some evidence to support my argument.

I am just as sick as you are of studies that tell us what we already know. As I said before, I would have much rather seen that money spent on real-world projects to improve walkability. I will note in passing that the Public Works department of our city is full of people who are paid by our tax dollars to advocate the opposite perspective.
