Great to see some of the @birminghamcg22 logistical jobs being done on e-cargo bikes by @TransportForWM.
It’s all about the using the best tool for the job.
Why is @BBCr4today giving airtime to changing the law on dangerous cycling when it has spent little or no time on the lack of prosecution and inadequate sentencing for motorists who kill and seriously injure thousands of people (walking and cycling) every year?
implement @marmotihe GM report
Expose gap in outcomes in EVERY performance metric
Make it a CENTRAL part of the machine (as much managerial effort as elective recovery or financial balance)
my own thoughts:
Earlier this year Brussels announced the next phase of their traffic reduction plans. Last week they announced a 40% drop in car traffic since 2019. Cycling levels have quadrupled too. We get the traffic we plan for. Let's plan for people #BikeIsBest https://www.thebulletin.be/car-free-brussels-not-quite-city-has-big-plans-curbing-traffic-centre
This is fantastic from @activetraveleng - Councils with ambition will get help and funding, self-assessment by Council's on objective criteria will lead to real public accountability for those that aren't delivering. https://twitter.com/activetraveleng/status/1555479488842301440

The average US citizen uses 100 times more energy than they need to survive. ONE HUNDRED TIMES. Totally unsustainable.
When I see celebrities using private jets for 10 minute trips I feel I have to say again - If the worlds top 10% just lived the lives of the average European global emissions would Fall by 1/3. It’s hardly a massive sacrifice.
I wouldn’t get any exercise if I didn’t cycle for transport. You don’t have to fit exercise into your routine if getting from A to B is exercise. No gym membership needed, just a bike. Curbing car use & better active travel infra will help people achieve a healthier lifestyle. https://twitter.com/TimesScience/status/1551498916876750848
