Zašto su Holanđani biciklistička velesila?

Kako su holanđani došli do svoje biciklističke infrestrukture?

Kao što i sami pretpostavljate to nije bilo preko noći. Platili su životima to što su vozili bicikl dok je bila ekspanzija automobila.

Da se narod nije pobunio protiv automobila, i primorao vlasti da reaguju, ništa od ovog danas ne bi bilo.

Možemo mi da tupimo zube na TV-u do besvesti, ali jednostavno dok ne poraste svest šire populacije ljudi, i ne podignemo nivo urbane i ruralne kulture, ostaćemo ovde gde sada jesmo.

Zato smatram da je svako od vas ko ovo čita ambasador biciklizma i da svi zajedno moramo da radimo na podizanju nivoa svesti običnih građana, a onda će to već stići i na adresu gradskih vlasti, u bilo kom gradu.

How the Dutch got their cycling infrastructure

How did the Dutch get their cycling infrastructure? This question keeps coming back because it is of course relevant to people who want what the Dutch have.

Road building traditions go back a long way and they are influenced by many factors. But the way Dutch streets and roads are built today is largely the result of deliberate political decisions in the 1970s to turn away from the car centric policies of the prosperous post war era. Changed ideas about mobility, safer and more livable cities and about the environment led to a new type of streets in the Netherland.

“The Netherlands’ problems were and are not unique, their solutions shouldn’t be that either.”

Thus ends the video, but what do I mean by that? I think the Dutch could and should be copied. If you look at the key factors for the change in Dutch thinking, you see these are just as valid today. The world is still too dependent on fossil fuels and many cities in the world have congested streets. Streets and roads which are also very dangerous, especially for vulnerable road users like pedestrians and cyclists. And that is even more so when these road users are elderly or children.

The mass cycling protests in the 1970s look very similar as well, compared to protests in other countries today. Like the massive number of people protesting by bike on London’s Blackfriars bridge just a couple of days ago.

    Protesti biciklista za ostvarivanje prava na bezbednost?
    Cenim da bi, u ovom trenutku našeg društvenog momenta, imali za nijansu bolji tretman od gay parade. Bar ne bi dobili batine (valjda?)

        To je moje davnašnja ideja: protektorat. Dovedeš jedno dva’es norvežana ili šveđana i postaviš ih na glavna mesta u državi sa odrešenim rukama, jedino tako bi mogli da krenemo napred.
