And then there's the knucklehead who thinks Portland should be like Manhattan where no one drives cars. Just make it difficult for people to drive, and they will want to change their behavior to go along with his real estate dreams - to develop every last inch of space possible - like streets and parking lots - and have everyone ride bikes. In a city where only 6% of commuters ride bikes, he's delusional. But this kind of thinking is leaking out of the cities and into the suburbs, so watch out for all the "traffic calming" systems to come (for our own good of course).
