Default A Short History of Traffic Engineering

Great graphic which shows the transportation trends since 1800 from walk/horse to walk/bike/public transit/auto.

Thanks to copenhagenize.com and zite.

I don't think any were invented yet in 1800. Even the non pedaled precursors seem to have come 20 years later.
