Pedestrians of the world, unite!

You have nothing to lose but your lives.

As this report, noting the difficulties of negotiating Sydney streets, observes.

And in this report, also from the SMH, a great question:

Upon completing his report, Public Spaces, Public Life For The City Of Sydney, Professor Gehl asks: "We have one question for this city: what do you value more - your people, or your cars?"

Prof Gehl speaks truth! Buy the man a Danish pastry.

Unfortunately for the professor, we would need a few more harbour crossings and main flow points to stop cars going through the city.

He seems a bit too utopian for my liking.
