Building Bigger Roads Actually Makes Traffic Worse

Spent the first part of this week at the Doable Cities forum and learned a lot about this topic from the people and cities working to resolve the issue.

Turns out reducing roads and expanding walkable and bikeable paths are an integral part of the solution. http://www.wired.com/2014/06/wuwt-traffic-induced-demand/
