War on Cars Watch for October 2, 2019

Special Announcement: Are you fighting a road diet or traffic calming project in your city? If you have the time and money, we encourage you to attend the Keep LA Moving Conference on October 5th in Los Angeles. Shelia Dunn, your humble War on Cars Watch editor, will be presenting and we hope that getting together will help those move further in their fight against city hall. Check out the conference HERE. 

Due to the conference, the War on Cars Watch will return on October 16, 2019 with a special report.


The War on Cars Watch is a weekly feature of the NMA blog. The War on Cars Watch focuses on road diets, traffic calming and programs such as Vision Zero and Complete Streets as well as studies, court cases, and other news that affect motorists.  

We would love to hear from you about the War on Cars Watch. Please feel free to comment below the post.
