My takeaway from the RTH discussion of late has been that there is demonstrable surplus capacity along numerous corridors, and that judicious infrastructure investments might open our streets to greater participation by all citizens, resulting in an urban ecosystem that is more lively, balanced and respectful as a result of the uptick in multi-modal usage. To wit: "The public life of the city is in its streets, or it's nowhere."

To each his own. Not everyone will cotton to RTH's world view, but they are certainly free to dissent (if at risk of down-vote). Although I'm not it's scholarly, sometimes smitten, sometimes solemn, sometimes angst-stung, sometimes a little rose-coloured, sometimes a bit Portlandian, occasionally outlandish. But always passionately debated. And passionate debate, at the end of the day, is not a blocked artery but a strong pulse.
