Every great city-building project will inevitably have some downside for someone somewhere. Building Hamilton's 19th century water system eliminated cholera epidemics, but put private water sellers out of business.

Our present transportation system is causing a cancer epidemic. Currently motor vehicle operators poison and kill an average of 93 people in Hamilton every year. Zero is the only safe dose of their cancer-causing fine particles.

We improved our water system in the 19th century to eliminate cholera, typhus and other water-borne diseases. In the 21st century we can improve our transportation system to save the lives of the 93 people per year who are currently being poisoned and killed by motor vehicle operators.
