“In a fair world, it should be unthinkable to ignore the needs of close to one billion of the poorest people on the earth, living in its second-largest and second most-populous continent. A part of the world with fastest growing population in the world, already one-third of the population living in cities, most of whom in slums, car ownership and traffic exploding, highest rate of road fatalities and with a flow of people from the countryside continuing at record rates . . . a region in sharp transition. But to what?”

– From “Cities, Transport and Equity in Africa: Unasked Questions”, Eric Britton, World Streets
