Zusammenfassung

Seit knapp einem Jahrhundert dominiert das Automobil die Straßen US-amerikanischer Städte. Diese fast vollständige Motorisierung ist als komplexer Prozess mit beträchtlichen sozialen und städtebaulichen Konsequenzen zu betrachten. Allerdings scheint die Motorisierung in den letzten Jahren einen Sättigungspunkt erreicht zu haben, der sogar zu einem möglichen leichten Rückgang überleitet, denn vielerorts werden Straßenbahnen und Fahrradnetze gebaut und auch die Popularität des Zugfahrens nimmt zu. Dennoch kann die Förderung alternativer Verkehrsmittel durch einzelne Städte und Regionen nicht darüber hinwegtäuschen, dass andernorts auch heute noch eine starre Fokussierung auf das Auto besteht.
