[World Streets] Short Take: Stealing from pedestrians
World Streets Short Takes: Stealing from pedestrians
"One of my great interests is time reallocation in an urban system. All I mean by this is that when I walk across parts of London which I do most weeks it is quite clear that the amount of time I stand still and do not move as traffic hurtles past is very large. I estimate it is about 50% of my journey time. That means that even in a congestion charge best practice world my time is being stolen to reward drivers with time savings. I want the theft halted and the system re-prioritised to reward pedestrians and cyclists."
- John Whitelegg, Editor, World Transport Policy and Practice
