It has happened before at some point, especially in Spain...

Don't know if we'll ever get to the point of being car free, but easier access to public transportation and more public transportation would be a good first step. It would be amazing to have high speed trains that connected all large cities across the USA (I'm thinking something similar to Japan's high sped rail network). In addition to this, a greater reach of ride sharing apps and autonomous vehicles, especially in more rural areas would be great. It would save lives too in the short term (less people driving under the influence). Won't be cheap though and hopefully the regulators can somewhat keep pace with innovation (they usually don't so we'll inevitably get some more horror stories, as we already have).

In addition, e-bikes are becoming more popular and are a low-physical impact way to transport yourself, even seniors could use them. Again, it would be ideal if we had interconnected bike paths across the country. Would probably be an economic boon for businesses to serve such a network (hotels, motels, restaurants, etc)

It’s not all about the culture war – Democrats helped shaft the working class
