Chuck Marohn of Strong Towns has come out with another video emphasizing the importance of making good use of space. In this video, he uses the neologism “stroad”.
“The STROAD design — a street/road hybrid — is the futon of transportation alternatives. Where a futon is a piece of furniture that serves both as an uncomfortable couch and an uncomfortable bed, a STROAD moves cars at speeds too slow to get around efficiently but too fast to support productive private sector investment. The result is an expensive highway and a declining tax base.”
