Problem

Fragmentation of communities by automobiles

Other Names:
Communities divided by roads
Nature:
The use of cars has the overall effect of spreading people out, and keeping them apart. The effect of this on the social fabric is clear. People are drawn away from each other, and densities and corresponding frequencies of interaction decrease substantially. Contacts become fragmented and limited, localized by the nature of the interaction into well-defined indoor places - the home, the workplace, and maybe the homes of a few isolated friends.
