Life would just turn into a constant round of getting up, going to
work, coming home, cooking and cleaning, going to bed ready to get
up early the next morning. That's no life.

Before cars, people simply lived on bus or train routes.

before cars

people lived within walking distance of work

Yes and lived **** lives because they could not get decently paid jobs
or spent many hours of the day travelling back and forth.

How is an engineering design company, needing qualified and
experienced engineers and designers, to work if it can only recruit
people that can walk to the office?

by locating themselves in town centres (when PT is a viable alternative
to walking)

not in out of the way trading estates, where driving is your only viable

Which simply forces more people to make the city centre commute!
