More on walking everywhere

Got a lot of feedback on removing roads from urban areas.
You might want to take a look at TODs (Transportation Oriented Design) and PODs (Pedestrian Oriented Design) community development. One use of P.O.D
The book Pedestrian Pocket Book is a good start to this concept. It is fairly similar to ideas of Radiality. It proposes light rail from the town center to each POD of residential and retail so the car becomes non existant. I have been also recommended books by Paul Hawken and William McDonough...
