The Social Harms of Traffic (Weekend Watch)

The 6 minute video from StreetsFilms is inspired by Donald Appleyard‘s work examining the role automobile traffic has on neighborhood connectedness, more specifically the interpersonal connections of the street, A compelling video that uses beautifully designed graphics to make its point, as well as an interview with his son, Bruce Appleyard.

As Sarah Goodyear noted in her review on Grist, the video is:

…more than a tribute to an under recognized urbanist. It’s a reminder of how much still needs to be done to make our streets livable.
