and the number one reason we need to drive less is…
As pressing a matter as climate change is, it simply does not pose the immediate danger to our lives that traffic accidents do. This afternoon's three-car crash 60 yards from our house is pretty normal in Miami. We see one accident every half hour we spend on the road, on average. Crashes like this are particularly alarming, since this is where we cross the road with the kids when walking to downtown South Miami. Note the school zone signs.
We can walk and bike all we want, but we need collective action to make our roads safer.
