I saw this drawing a few years ago, but it resonates so much more with me now. I saw it again today on reddit europe.

@andrej But it's still too nice. Actually, sidewalks are full of parked scooters, motorbikes, bikes, and even cars.

diese Propaganda der Autoindustrie geht ja voll nach hinten los

...and this picture doesn't even include parking lots...

@andrej in my city those holes would be just about everywhere!!

I first saw it as a way to describe the dangers of traffic. How dangerous it is to cross a street or walk on the sidewalk this close to the heavy and powerful vehicles steered by randos.

Not that I'm a proponent of self driving cars. Even though a single vehicle can make a lot of damage, it's nothing compared to what you can do with a whole fleet.
