How the Dutch do it.

This one is a bit long with some awesome Euro techno music....maybe if we build more biking facilities in the US Devo will make a resurgence!  Really, if you hate techno fast forward to about 1:30 minutes in.  The real point of the video is to show that the Dutch made a conscious choice to change their cities and driving habits 30 years ago. US cities are now sending planners, engineers, and government officials to the Netherlands on a regular basis to see how non-car centric cities work, and how they can help use these designs to create livable cities here in the US.

Now all we have to do is find out how to get a few of these ideas into Mayor Cashell's head!
