Inefficient Density

LA's a big place and not entirely homogeneous, but after spending a few weeks there my basic observation is that it tends to have all the costs of population density (cars, it's all cars) without the benefits. Even the more walkable bit aren't pleasant to walk.

There's some tipping point that places just can't get over. If you build for cars, you get cars.
