    This quote from “Case for Congestion” hits close to LOS:

    “Fighting traffic congestion by merely adding more road capacity is what Lewis Mumford called a “monochromatic” approach. In his critique of the Texas Transportation Institute’s “2010 Urban Mobility Report,” University of Connecticut engineering professor Norman Garrick wrote that “TTI lost sight of the fact that a transportation system affects almost all aspects of daily life and that its value should not be judged purely on the basis of how well it affords the speedy movement of vehicles.” In doing such, we fail to recognize the way traditional streets shape successful, self-reliant and stimulating places.”
