One final point on risk, from Professor John Adams, who has thought long and hard about the impact of the car on urban life, that is to say how you deal with it sensibly, rather than sticking your head in the sand. He notes that because of improved technology, there is every possibility that cars will become cleaner and faster, and that motoring will become cheaper. Unfortunately, 'there exists no coherent plan for dealing with anticipated future growth'.

Whatever happened to 'predict and provide'? Or systematic motorway charging? Or, dare one say it, new roads? Anyone who thinks roads have nothing to do with regeneration should visit Hastings, where the recent rejection of a much-needed link has condemned the town to more decades of economic doldrums.
