The year is 2035. You wake up to chirping birds instead of honking horns due to fewer large vehicles on the road. While sipping your coffee at your favorite local shop, you read about how the U.N. is meeting carbon emission goals for 2040, a common occurrence these days. You take a glance outside to see vividly blue skies, with the distant mountains much clearer than they used to be. The days of dense traffic congestion is done, along with the noise, pollution, and high number of traffic accidents that come with it. Updated city infrastructure makes it easier and safer for pedestrians, cyclists, and light electric vehicles to get around. Sure, it was an adjustment for people to see their cities no longer built around cars, but they adapted. And after a bit, they were happy with the change. You step outside the coffee shop and grab one of the scooters on the charging rack attached to the building and ride to the nearest major metro stop to get to work. Like everyone else, you only go into the office a couple times a week for meetings and collaboration because you have the freedom to work remotely. Your company reimburses you for travel to the office, a common practice because hardly anyone drives to their offices anymore. You are free to live life without walls.
