Urbification: Taking the sub out of Calif. suburbs

Walking. Bicycling. Alternatives to Driving Everywhere. Social justice. Alternatives to suburban boredom and waste. And the infrastructure and technology needed to get there.

More from Pravin Varaiya, who is a research for the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Berkeley: "They made I-15 in San Diego County into a HOT [High-Occupancy/Toll] Lane. You go through free if you are two people or more, or you can pay a toll. They vary the toll so that that lane doesn't become congested. During rush hour the toll is much higher. It's a free market. It senses the quality of congestion and adjusts the toll accordingly. I think that is a very good idea, and it would benefit everybody."
