What happens when you design cities around cars

Bad design kills people.

That’s right. It’s not a matter of aesthetics, or of politics, or of opinion. It’s a plain fact: When you design streets solely for cars, people die as a result. The underlying conditions that are responsible for those deaths are rarely or never challenged. The victims often get blamed for their own injuries or deaths.

Not that there’s a lesson in this for Toronto or anything. (h/t @HiMYSYeD)
