Reclaiming city streets for people: Chaos or quality of life?
The introduction to this study says "One of the key issues affecting the quality of the environment and the quality of life in our towns and cities is road traffic. Heavy motor traffic means poor air quality, unacceptable levels of noise and a weakened sense of neighbourhood and local community. Traffic also gives rise to high costs for the economy through delays caused by congestion." Chapters give case studies ncluding Oxford, Cambridge, Wolverhampton, Vauxhall Cross in London, and four European mainland cities in Belgium, Finland, France and Germany.
