Autos belong on the street. In Raleigh,N.C. we have no courtyards or green areas in our older urban areas because on street parking is so restricted. Hence our once charming city looks much like Germany after the war with flat expanses of empty lots where gardens or buildings once stood. The traffic calming effect of parked cars is lost. As roads are widened traffic moves faster, the buildings lose their relationship to the street. It's important to be in control of autos and not have them control you. Keep your off street areas beautiful, acessible and people friendly. Warmest Regards, Mitchell Hazouri Raleigh, N.C.
