Car-Centric is Not the Answer by Ellen Birrell

An excellent guest editorial has been published in the Salt Lake Tribune, written by our Fried Ellen Birrell at Save Not Pave. Birrell addresses the heat we are all feeling this summer, but outlines why making Salt Lake’s transportation systems more car-centric is not the solution but the problem.

“Citizens want improvements but not a larger asphalt footprint. Swelling population, lack of effective regional transit planning and funding combined with ill-conceived regional land-use and a well-funded UDOT makes for a predicament.”
