How times have changed….
Started reading “Straphanger” by Taras Grescoe , and that is the first quote when you open the book. .. Very interested to see the topics he discusses
Shutup Thatcher…..and really Dali?
Obviously, I disagree, but it´s great to have a tag called “weird” to bookmark this kind of stuff.
Part of a bicycle safety campaign by Metro in Los Angeles. Separated bike lanes and bike signals are important, but I don’t discount the positive effect of more signage and awareness. I’d love to see more of these everywhere!
'Every lanes a bike lane.'
Don’t we wish!
SInce moving to a small Midwestern non-bike/pedestrian friendly city I have wanted to put these signs up everywhere. I a single month I’ve had people tell me to “get on the sidewalk,” and “you shouldn’t do that, it’s dangerous.” The cycling culture here seems to be relatively restricted to those who don’t have cars and the sight of a young, well-dressed woman on a bike makes people nervous.
People here also do not stop for pedestrians. A friend and I were in the middle of a crosswalk (one that had no light associated with us) and traffic did not stop, despite the fact that we were standing in the middle of the road. I’ve seen this happen on multiple occasions. I can’t wait to live in a real city again someday.
Streets can invite for healthier lifestyles
A city with generous sidewalks, interconnected bike paths and green parks can incentivise people to exercise more. Moscow is currently working towards becoming a more walkable city.
They vary in focus and perspective, but together (and disordered) compose a good database of videos that are circulating out there and deal with many of the issues urban policies face nowadays.
