Dispelling highway myths

Andy Boenau, reporting on Chuck Marohn’s talk at CNU 20:

One of Marohn’s trademark statements is that by misunderstanding the true nature of streets and roads, a hybrid has evolved–stroads. Streets are for people and roads are for cars. And as Marohn says, “stroads are the futon of transportation options. They try to do everything and they don’t do anything well.”
