Oh. My. God.

This "dialog" between an engineer and a resident  is both fantastic and stomach clenching in its kafka-esqe premise:


The cartooning is a little lame (it's some kind of automated text to cartoon program I think?)
but this just drives home the absurd logic and ridiculous premises behind the last 50 years of urban transportation planning.


  1. Oh my God indeed.
    If only this was fictional and I could laugh : (

  2. This made me too vexed to watch the whole thing. I live on a narrow street that serves as a shortcut between commercial districts. The situation described here is far too familiar to be funny. Sadly, the logic displayed is spot-on to what comes out of our city's traffic planners' mouths on a regular basis.
