  •  Detroit has little congestion (1+ / 0-)

    so destroying the transit, degrading the street grid and building Billions of dollars on freeways succeeded in meeting the state of Michigan's goal of winning the battle against congestion. Congestion isn't a big problem in the motor city anymore.
    Actually congestion isn't all bad. It's like cholesterol; you have good cholesterol and bad and if you don't have any you die. Detroit needs some congestion, especially that produced by transit riders, bicyclists and pedestrians so it can become vibrant again. Freeways should be replaced with avenues and boulevards.Detroit's streetcar system at the end of WWII had more than 300 miles of track. Michigan should start restoring it.

    Cities are good for the environment
