Scott White at Velo Paso in the great state of Texas has been developing
these “snarky pseudo infographics” based on some of his observations of

The images, White says, were inspired by some of his experiences at
public meetings in El Paso and in part by graphics produced by Andy Boenau, who
also makes the Urbanism Speakeasy podcast. “It kind of turns out, these
