I’d hardly call the death of 45 Million people ‘one great service’ but possibly a very tragic accident.
One of the most bombed out cities was Frankfurt; interestingly over 50% of their commuters move by metro and all Autobahns stop at the edge of the CBD.
Gridlock is not a phrase they really understand, they went under the remanants of their medieval city with two metro lines. Their airport has the highest percentage of rail users and one of the clearest flowing road networks in Europe as a result.
