Our roads and infrastructure need to be made safer, less scary and more convenient for people who choose to cycle as part of their everyday activities – especially children.
In the UK, Members of Parliament are increasingly taking note of the growing demands for people to have a real choice in how to travel to work, to school, to the shops, over to a friend’s place or just for the joy of cycling!
“We urgently need the government to start taking cycling as a means of transport seriously, and to reallocate space so that it can be done without the conflict.” — Karl McCracken (@KarlOnSea)
The changes benefit all users of the roads, and will have spin-offs on the economy and on society’s health – there’s an obesity epidemic in many countries that costs taxpayers billions in health-related costs.
For far too long, many governments have prioritised and funded the speedy movement of motorised vehicles. At best, this has put people off using a bicycle for normal journeys – say to the shops, to work or school, and over to a friend’s house; but at worst it has created dangerous locations which sometimes cause a tragic death or serious injury.
Now is the time to demand that Governments put a stop to the killing of people who choose to cycle.
Now is the time to demand that Governments create better infrastructure that gives a real choice when we travel.
