The Effects of Car Dependency in the U.S.
social inequality, racism & prejudice, mental health
Car dependent infrastructure is an expensive, dangerous, inefficient, and discriminatory method of city planning prevalent throughout the United States. While affecting a majority of people living in this country, this type of urban planning disproportionately affects the everyday lives of both the middle/lower class and marginalized people in this country, as car dependency has been used as a tool to segregate, oppress, and destroy communities of color for decades. Additionally, a car is typically the second largest expense in the average American’s life; it is a financial burden with no escape and no viable alternatives, and for many Americans, this is not sustainable or affordable at all.
