Urban Design at its Worst

Long-time readers know that I am an advocate of solid urban design that incorporates all users. Here is an example in Richardson, a prototypical suburb, of where there is no balance. Click play on the video in the link, which comes from Rodger Jones, who blogs about transportation issues for the Dallas Morning News.

Sadly, this is far more common than the exception. This is an example of of my saying that we don't love our cars, we are forced into subservience to them. There really is no option here for most people. Drive to the rail station or drive to your destination, but driving one way or another.
