Document Summary

Suburbs continued to de- velop slowly but steadily during the 19th and early. 20th centuries, thanks to transportation advances such as commuter trains and streetcars, the innova- tions of early real estate developers, and the urge to live in pastoral tranquility rather than in urban squalor. Different land uses are kept separate from each other, with the separation enforced by both cus- tom and zoning laws. With the ex- pansion of suburbs, capital investment and economic opportunity shift from the center to the periphery. One of the cardinal features of sprawl is driving, associated with health hazards, including air pollution, motor vehicle crashes, and pedestrian injuries and fatalities. Motor vehicles are a leading source of air pollution. Thus, air pollution is a problem not only alongside roadways (or in close proximity to other sources) but also on the scale of entire regions.
