Launched in 1990, the nonprofit Alliance for a Paving Moratorium is a diverse and rapidly growing movement of grassroots community groups, individuals and businesses. Our common goal: to halt the tremendous environmental, social and economic damage caused by endless road building. Decaying inner cities, foul air and water, global warming and war over oil are all byproducts of our growth-at-any-cost economy. A paving moratorium would limit the spread of population, redirect investment from suburbs to inner cities, and revitalize our economy. Funds would be freed for mass transportation and to maintain existing roads. The Alliance assists road fighters all over the world, and publishes Road Fighters' Alerts and the quarterly Auto-Free Times magazine.
