The Ugly, Dangerous, and Inefficient Stroads found all over the US & Canada

I find this interesting.  I like having neighborhoods where I can walk and ride my bicycle.

In a hypothetical future world, you might have trains that could take you anywhere you want to go within a few blocks.  It might be too costly.  However, roads tend to get more crowded over time.

There is a famous old science fiction story called, "The Roads Must Roll", where a future society has high-speed people conveyors, like the slow ones you see at airports.  These are massive where you could go to a movie theater or shopping on the road while it is moving.  The closest we might ever come to something like this is a train.

The most convenient form of transportation is automobiles, but you need much infrastructure to support it.
