Yes, we all want what we want, but some of us want the greater good even if it means making some sacrifices, while some of us want to preserve our personal convenience even at the cost of the quality of life, livelihoods, and safety of others.

The reason there is a debate is because late capitalism has made a virtue of this selfishness. Otherwise it would make no sense to weigh a few minutes of drivers' time against the health and safety of affected neighbourhoods as if the two were equal in any way.
