Here's Looking At You, Suburban Waukesha

John Norquist was telling us this for decades:

Cul-de-sacs are killing America
Poor suburban design means we're congesting roadways and walking less

to be fair, parts of Milwaukee made these kinds of errors also.

And it was pretty well known before Norquist; but traffic planners have been extraordinarily resistant to it; plus, local zoning and planning boards are remarkably wedded to the idea. It is, I think, a knee jerk "keep the bad people out" instinct.
