Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #557 – April 22, 2017



Of the 1400 communities I have walked, I have not found one where designing for the car has made it a successful place. Indeed, the most successful villages, towns and cities in America are those designed before the car was invented, and where the least tinkering has been done since.
We tend not to like open, scary places, and we try to get through them quicker. Somehow the canopy effect of tree-lined streets slows traffic.

—DAN BURDEN, US Walkability and Bikeability Advocate, 1944-
