Cycle safely to school - use the pavement
If cycling with kids was safer I KNOW more mums and dads would cycle them to school taking loads of cars off the road at rush hour.
There are 2 pavements on both sides of the road. Can 1 side be designated for children to cycle on between 8am and 9.30am and 2.30-4.30Mon to Fri? THe other side is for pedestrians.
Lets try it - a trial month - June, its sunny(!?) Lots of pizes for children that cycle, promotions etc etc - count how many roads move faster etc. Children will do more exercise (very positive) and the city will start moving again
Why the contribution is important
Simple solution to help ease congestion.Children get fitter. Parents terrified of taking children onto the road on their bikes don't have to. With a physical separation between bike and cars/buses/lorries - cyclists will be safer. In addition there will be fewer car journeys around Bristol.
