It’s time we demand that engineers build us Strong Towns. Confessions of a Recovering Engineer

Reserve Street-Head-On-Crash

“Wider, faster, treeless roads not only ruin our public places, they kill people. Taking highway standards and applying them to urban and suburban streets, and even county roads, costs us thousands of lives every year.”

This essay was written by Charles Marohn one late November evening when writer’s block had taken hold and all that was left was to make some “confessions,” things that had been on his mind for quite some time. When he arrived at the office the next morning, his inbox was full and “Confessions of a Recovering Engineer” was on its way to become our most widely read and referenced essay ever.
