California Op-Ed: Why Drivers should support Reductions in Driving and CEQA (War on Cars Watch)

The law changed the way California’s Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) measures the transportation impacts of development projects. For decades, this metric was based on the wrongheaded assumption that allowing more cars to go faster (known as “Level of Service” or LOS) was better for the environment. The idea that more + faster cars = better environment isn’t just absurd, it is racist and exclusionary to think only of drivers when thinking of transportation. Read on and you’ll see this even works against the interests of drivers.
