Street Films: Bogota Planning Successes

I've watched this brilliant interview from StreetFilms countless times in recent weeks and can't get many of the points made by ex-mayor Enrique Peñalosa out of my mind. It will change the way you look at your own city - its streets, public spaces, and the domination of the automobile over the people who live there... Think of it as a template for cityscapes in which cargobikes will achieve their full promise - the bakfiets is just a tool, it needs a proper habitat.

What a wonderful refreshing view at the possibilities of a city culture based upon pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. It is certainly beyond time that the automobile focus of our society begins to take a back seat.
