If you haven’t read Roads Were Not Built For Cars yet, grab it and grab it now. We’ll have a formal review in the future, but suffice to say it’s an incredibly interesting read that is perhaps the most thoroughly researched and footnoted book around. And the “clicky flicky” iPad version, as author Carlton Reid likes to call it, is the way to go if you want interactive images, videos and other bonus content not found in the print editions.
And you should have enough time to finish it before the sequel, Bike Boom, is published.
Like Roads before it, Boom is being funded through Kickstarter, and it’s already surpassed its goal of £6,000. But, the more Reid raises, the better the book will get, and the more copies will be sent to traffic planners, transportation department managers and the like, which may just help all of us see a bigger boom in our own communities.
