Charles Marohn is kind of a hero. In this TED talk, the executive director of Strong Towns, explains the difference between a road, which is a connection to two place and a street, which is a network of activity. He stresses the importance of returning roads to towns for community and economic development.
I first came across Marohn after he authored the excellent "Confessions Of A Recovering Engineer," which caused quite a stir in the transportation community. After the jump is an excerpt.
