Bicycle, slip road, Greenford Flyover

This bike seems so out of place parked next to the fast moving traffic at the flyover. Most of the cars going past had one passenger – the driver – which is something that has to change if emissions and the consumption of oil are to be reduced.

  1. You are right there, but how to get people to share cars, or better still, use public transport… Discuss!

    • I have begun to wonder if more funding should be provided for the development of emission free cars. I have never learned to drive and don’t really get “car love” but I don’t think we’ll ever stop humans wanting to get from A (usually their front door) to B when they want to, not when the bus or train timetable lets them. They’ll also want to do it in comfort, protected from the elements – we aren’t all cut out for cycling! The rise in the cost of fares has shocked me, especially as the standard of public transport here is so poor. I now walk more than I used to. Car sharing schemes do exist and it may be that they need a boost from local government to promote them. Just getting people to walk a bit more would be good for all sorts of reasons!

Let me know what you think...
