This book explains how Dublin - Ireland - got into its current transport mess and shows that its consequences are worse than we think. As a case study, it is a lesson for any major city worldwide. Living in Dublin without a car is almost impossible. This is not some inevitable by-product of the 'Celtic Tiger', since international comparisons show that inhabitants of wealthy and economically successful cities often have comparatively low levels of car usage. Dublin has become car dependent due to a lack of planning and as a result of extensive suburban sprawl, road development and no coordinated integrated public transport network. For Dublin, the slogan 'Boston or Berlin' is optimistic - the most likely destination is not even Los Angeles but Bangkok, the world's most famous traffic jam. This book maps a road for change for an issue that effects everyone in greater Dublin.
