      > We don't need any new infrastructure, what we need is to clear the
      > existing infrastructure of inefficient vehicles and replace them
      > with efficient ones. In other words: give all streets, highways,
      > cloverleaves and motorways exclusively to bicycles and all other
      > human powered wheeled vehicles. Get rid of cars. Why make things so
      > complicated if the solution is so simple?
      > Yes, I do want the motorway. It takes me more than an hour to pedal
      > from my town to the city, because half of the time I am waiting in
      > front of a traffic light watching cars passing me by.

      > Picture this for a second. If cars are gone, we are left with
      > pedestrians (on the sidewalk), pedal powered vehicles (one part of
      > the streets and the highways) and public transportation (another
      > part of the streets and the highways, separated from pedal powered
      > traffic, or underground). Taxis are allowed to stay, as long as
      > they are equipped with pedals and chain drives.
