The social ideology of the motorcar – Uneven Earth

quote [ If the car is to prevail, there’s still one solution: get rid of the cities. That is, string them out for hundreds of miles along enormous roads, making them into highway suburbs. That’s what’s been done in the United States. ]

Here's a thoughtful piece about infrastructure and the car as a luxury good. It's interesting that there seem to be more articles on the roots of car usage in the US as of lately.
