(Slang) Pro-suburbia. Citizens, mostly suburban dwellers, against the policies of desuburbanization. The society of civil engineers, backed by new urbanists and railroad lobbyists, pointed to suburbia as the center of the vicious circle of car overproduction, systemic construction of highways, and the dependence on foreign oil. Prosubs called for a greater political autonomy of their residential areas and for wider collector roads.
