This video seems a little bleak, perhaps a little too tongue-in-cheek. Depending on where I go in my city, you might see lots of people roaming around... on foot. Even in my little, old-fashioned suburb, there are people getting around with their feet!
I live in an older suburb. It's a town that grew quickly in the 1950s. Some of it has a great grid structure for the streets and later versions of street design have a bit less. At one point there probably wasn't a whole bunch of walking. Stores were too far away for you to take a stroll for a loaf of bread.
But nowadays, there's been a bunch of in-fill development. Much of it is commercial, so I can walk to several places.. a bakery, bar, couple of restaurants, groceries.
In fact, I even see a lot of people who appear to be just out for a stroll.
Humans were built to walk!
