Freeway revolt

Freeway revolt is a random page from the Wikipedia.

The Freeway Revolt is the name given to public opposition against building freeways through San Francisco, California in the 1950s. It started in 1956 when the San Francisco Chronicle published a map (See image) made in 1947 or 1948 by the San Francisco Planning Department showing possible routes for freeways through the city, and by the construction of the Embarcadero Freeway.

It would have been an excellent name for a rock group in the seventies I think.
