Urban Fold

These Cartoons About Car Culture Are No Joke

Andy Singer is an alternative transportation advocate that uses cartoons, rather than written diatribes or combative slideshows, to argue against America's auto-oriented environments and policies.

Stephanie Garlock speaks with Andy Singer, the St. Paul-based cartoonist whose latest book, Why We Drive, "uses political cartoons and historical photos to make the case" for car-free cities and car-free living. "Many of his main arguments are familiar: he's anti-sprawlpro-public transportationpro-biking, and against the types of hidden government incentives that make these policies difficult to put in place."

Singer talks with Garlock "about his new book and how he's used his work as a cartoonist to make arresting visual arguments in favor of alternative transportation."
