How can we as citizens be empowered to reduce traffic and pollution in our densest cities? What’s one thing you would do to create change?
i share your point of view on the fact that truck traffic should be reduced in city. The first important thing is that trucks which are not delivering anything in a city need to go around the city providing that ad hoc infrastructures exist. Second , innovative solutions have to found to make sure that the last mile deliveries of goods in cities is done with zéro local émission and no noise. Small hybrid plug in light trucks could be a solution for this but it will not arrive if cities dont take regulation to put limit on noise and emissions of vehicles entering in a city.

Your post remind me of what a french humorist called Alphonse Allais used to say "to solve the problems of the cities we should put the cities in the countryside" more seriously if many cities are becomming bgger and bigger , it is because poeple can find jobs there when they have difficulties to find the jobs in small cities and in the countryside. Our job is to developp the technologies , public policies ....... in order for these mega cities not to be "crowded, dirty, smog, ...." as you mentioned There will not be a single magic solution but many innovative solutions have to be found to improve to quality of life in Megacities. for instance intelligent t shared private transport can drastically reduce traffic in some cities and be more efficient than public transport for some arreas.
