And the effort to have the Clean energy bill to clean up transportation systems. I would like to point out the European model is walk a mile, bike 5 miles, use mass transit for corridor travel and the car for everything else. This is a wonderful model and should be promoted here in the States. I will strongly assert that it is promoting cycling that can help wean people off of over use of cars, it is connecting with cycling that can help turn a barely usable mass transit system into one that functions better and it is cyclist that help make the roads more people friendly and encourage people to get out and walk.
I will strongly assert that promoting cycling will yield the most bank for the buck in helping promote mass transit and more walking, without this critical ingredient, recipes for better communities and better transportation would be like cooking without salt, just because its a small amount does not mean it is unnecessary.
