Interesting Facts about the career

Pedestrians are Priority
How to make it easy for people without transportation to get around? A walkable city with a good public transportation is more adept to thrive than a city that relies on everyone owning cars.

Wider the roads the better. Width of a sidewalk or road is a detail that cannot be overlooked. The wider the roads the more cars can drive and the faster they can drive. Wider sidewalks equal more room for pedestrians to roam.
