A dense underground tunneled city would sure beathaving the leave your car

For that matter, considering many non residential areas don't even bother
with windows [mall stores] perhaps an underground level to the carfree
topology can be added [a fifth floor] for commercial use.
As for the need for cops, isn't one of the benifits of car free cities to
increase ped density so that everything ends up being watched?
