End, don't mend, the auto system

People are struggling with the hell caused by the private auto. They call for
  • tougher enforcement of infractions
  • campaigns against distracted driving
  • lower speed limits
  • more bike/ped infrastructure
  • more subways
  • traffic calming
These are not solutions. They are weak attempts to beg for mercy. We need a strong campaign to get back to bikes and walking by breaking the monopoly of the subsidized auto. The best path is fare-free buses.
