Emergency rooms and ER's are full to capacity. Let's not build hospitals. Bigger hospitals mean more will come.

To an extent that is in fact true. If you allow people to come to the hospital no matter what, they will fill it up. On the other hand, if you do not build enough, there will be constant delays and people will die needlessly. There has to be a balance.

When a roadway newly built operates at 85% capacity immediately, that tells you it should have been built long before. If it fills up over ten years, that says you haven't planned for alternatives very well.

I agree with you that proper urban planning is essential. That doesn't mean build no roads at all costs. (Personally I would live in neither LA or Vancouver.)
