Are Godzilla roads swallowing up cars and drivers by the dozen?!
It’s easy to blame a piece of asphalt for killing people… But it’s really about vehicles, speed and humans.
We applaud TAC, Vicroads and the Addy for this awareness campaign they are on.
We hope that those agencies can see the sense in taking cars off the roads (not adding more) as well as making existing ones safer – Vicroads spends about a billion dollars each year on new roads. This adds capacity to a handle more cars and make it easier to drive. These streets never make it easier to ride – every street is car priority.
Building roads for cars forces more people into cars that don’t want to or shouldn’t be driving.
Build the local bike infrastructure so people are not forced to drive for the 15% of trips that are 3km or less.
