improvement: radio, TV, telephone, computer, house, telescope,
and even the wheel (wheelchair, bicycle, cart, and record player).
None of the above will endanger human life and environment, but
the car is the worst invention the man ever made because it's
dangerous. Everyday I hear between 3 to 5 people die or are
hurt by the car or truck and that sucks, even more if the victim is a
pedestrian or a cyclist.
A suggestion of a thing to do is to gather everyone who wants a
carfree city and build one. I'm sure there is a sufficient number
of people in many countries who'd like to move to a carfree city
designed especially for them in their country. Lyon in France is
a good example. If France citizens who desire to live in a carfree
environment decide to move to Lyon, chances are that authorities
will have to realize some part (and eventually all part) of Lyon
must become carfree. Once we set up a real one, the citizens of surrounding
cities (and maybe elsewhere too) still stuck in traffic jams may also
realize Lyon offers a better life quality and convert their city too.
