Keyserlei

This is how the boulevard for pedestrians and cyclists on the Keyserlei (Antwerp) looked like one morning. I do understand that finding a parking space for a truck isn’t always that easy, but I guess that there are other solutions…

Solutions for unsafe traffic?

The BIVV (Belgisch Instituut voor Verkeerveiligheid) calculated that for kids using a bike traffic is 63 times more dangerous than taking the back seat in a car. The solution according the BIVV? Drive your kids around by car! Unbelievable. Of course it’s more dangerous on a bike than in a car. But how come? Where are the figures of cyclists causing lethal accidents compared to car drivers? Learn those kids (and their parents) how to drive a bike and hope they’ll keep doing it the rest of their lives. Not only as recreation or sports, but importantly as often the best way to get things done.
