The domination of the car, roads and carbon emissions is a worldwide problem. Active transport, based on walking and cycling, is increasingly seen as a solution. The benefits go way beyond individual health. This series of podcasts features transport planners, traffic engineers, community artists, car designers and public health researchers, arguing the economic, business, environmental, public and community health reasons to step away from the car. Most of them drive cars, and walk, and cycle and catch public transport. So do the Radio Adelaide interviewer/producers Nicky Page, Suzanne Reece and Sarah Martin.
