Video discussing some of the ethics of using an automobile

StreetFilms has a new video up, wherein Randy Cohen, writer of New Your Times Magazine's "Ethicist," is interview about cycling and some of what he views as unethical behavior by motorists.

Part of it discusses issues specific to NYC. Some of the broader ethical questions that are discussed aren't new, though its nice to hear them voiced. Most are rooted in the car obsessed and centered society that we have created and the tradeoffs that are made between convenience for one group or for ourselves versus some benefit to another person or community.
