Comment of the day: There is no war on cars


People just want to travel safely. Does that mean there’s a war?

This isn’t gonna be a feature, but as I was reading through and responding to reader comments on my article¬†Breaking down the battle John McCarron wants to start, I was pleased to find a protest to the usage of “war” as a way to describe the evolution of Chicago’s transportation system.

I really find the violent “war” terminology appalling. If there is a war between cars and people biking/walking, only one side is fighting and inflicting casualties — with aggressive, reckless and distracted driving. The rest of us are just trying to get to work in one piece.

It’s from the people at Carfree Chicago.
