Sacred Spaces

I’ve been a pedestrian/transit-rider since I got rid of my car in 1999. I still have my driver’s licence and occasionally drive (someone to the airport, eg.). Having spent that much time on the outside of the car I have a different attitude about speed than I did 10 years ago.

On the freeway it’s all about relative speeds (I will go 10 over if I can, but I also adhere to the 2-second following-distance); if someone is going a lot faster or slower than the cars around them, especially in heavy traffic, there’s bound to be trouble.

But wherever there are cross-walks, driveways, bike-lanes, cross-streets, schools, churches, shops, parks, bus-stops, mailboxes… I do not exceed the speed limit. Neighborhoods are sacred spaces.

See these other pieces if you’re not too disturbed by my negative take on the automobile and what it’s done to community, neighborhood, health, culture, and planet.
