The Guardian has published another article on Vauban, a Freiburg neighborhood considered progressive in many respects but largely misrepresented. But this author does not make any mistakes in his admittedly brief presentation.
He also points out that other car-free districts often physically prevent you from driving up to your front door, which is only an inconvenience. Why should I not be able to transport a new fridge by truck or a giant load of groceries by car?
Unfortunately, the Guardian also references a laughable previous article it seems to be proudly sticking to. I dissect it here.
