RUS Miami: Car Perversion.

We are in Miami, a sprawl city based on the use of private vehicle for almost any city displacement. Thomas Jefferson, former founder father of the United States, worked hard to stablish a urban planning model on the new country. While a public survey system used a cartesian grid method to measure and divide every land of the country, an anti urban model was being inagurated. Jefferson thought on the corrupted europe cities and dreamt with a farm society without the problems of urban massification. But he did not think about the petrol prize.
