My favorite and I think one of the most informed traffic columnists out there is Gary Richards aka “Mr Roadshow” of the San Jose Mercury News. Because of damage in his right foot due to severe neuropathy, his doctor has ordered him to limit his walking and no driving for six to eight months. Apparently, even the simple act of pushing the accelerator and brake is enough to cause further damage to his foot.
He uses his condition to lead in to a story about those who cannot drive because of age or disability. He doesn’t specifically cover the challenges of getting around our built environment if you can’t drive, but rather the emotional hit because driving is so much a part of our culture and identities.
