Eltern werden zur Verkehrsgefahr auf Schulwegen

„So sind quer durch die Republik neue Gefahrenzonen für kindliche Verkehrsteilnehmer entstanden, ausgerechnet direkt vor Schulen, ausgerechnet wegen der Eltern, die ihre Kinder mit dem Pkw bringen. Ein Massenphänomen: Legten 1976 noch mehr als 90 Prozent der deutschen Kinder im Alter von sechs und sieben Jahren ihre Schulwege selbstständig zurück – allein oder mit anderen Kindern –, so waren es 2000 nur noch 52 Prozent. […] Sollte es den Eltern aber dabei um den Schutz der Kleinen vor Verkehrsgefahren gehen, so täuschen sie sich. Mittlerweile verunglücken Kinder beim Mitfahren im Pkw öfter, als wenn sie zu Fuß gehen. 2012 waren laut Statistischem Bundesamt 7171 Kinder bis 15 Jahren als Fußgänger von Straßenverkehrsunfällen betroffen. Aber 10.363 verunglückten in Autos.“

„We need to get rid of road sectarianism, car drivers supposedly hate cyclists, cyclists hate taxi drivers, taxi drivers hate motorcyclists, bus drivers hate lorries. I just think if everybody was a little bit more pragmatic, that would do more for safety.“

Der Bau des Rosensteintunnels gefährdet und beengt jeden Tag bis zu 5500 Fahrradfahrer in Stuttgart

„Leider behindern die Baumaßnahmen für den Rosensteintunnel und die neue Eisenbahnbrücke für Stuttgart 21 den Radverkehr und führen zu einer gravierenden Verschlechterung für Radfahrer“, sagt Kathrin Werner, Vorstandsmitglied des ADFC Stuttgart.

Ausschnitt aus einem MDR Beitrag: Der Radweg ist eine Erfindung der Nazis

„Das Risiko auf dem Radweg zu verunglücken ist bis zu 12 mal höher als auf der Straße“

Wikipedia.de:
„Zeigen wir [zur kommenden Olympiade 1936] dem staunenden Ausländer einen neuen Beweis für ein aufstrebendes Deutschland, in dem der Kraftfahrer nicht nur auf den Autobahnen, sondern auf allen Straßen durch den Radfahrer freie, sichere Bahn findet.“

When art meets engineering
The GIFs above show Metropolis II, a kinetic sculpture of the modern bustling city. The project — by artist Chris Burden — took nearly four years to create and features 1,100 cars zipping around 18 roadways, including one six-laner. “The noise and level of activity are both mesmerizing and anxiety provoking,” he explains.  
Burden has created a number of large-scale installations that walk the line between engineering and sculpture:

As an art-school graduate student at the University of California, Irvine, his friends were physics students who played around in the lab the way he experimented and daydreamed in his studio. “They’d say, ‘We follow our hunches, we freeze things to 300 degrees below zero and then we hit them with hammers,’ ” he recalled. “I thought, ‘Wow, that’s kind of what I do.’”

His retrospective show, Extreme Measures at The New Museum, is showing through January 12th, 2014.

Radwegpflicht war gestern

„In Bochum hat man inzwischen die meisten Radwege auf den Bürgersteigen entweder auf die Straße verlegt oder gänzlich abgeschafft.
In Herford in Westfalen ist die Stadt noch konsequenter. Der Verkehrsausschuss hat generell angeordnet, die Benutzungspflicht für die Radwege aufzuheben, die neben der Fahrbahn laufen.“

Zum Beitrag Verkehr: Radwegpflicht war gestern des Deutschlandfunk vom 18.08.2014.

WIWO Green - Metropolen: Autofreundliche Städte machen Bewohner krank

„Der Grund ist einfach: Fußgänger und Radfahrer sind durch mehr Bewegung statistisch gesehen gesünder als Autofahrer. Die Studie zeigte deutlich, dass die Bewohner in Städten mit kürzeren Blocks und kleineren Straßen gesünder sind, als die in autofreundlichen Städten mit langen Blocks und breiten Straßen.“

Zum Beitrag Metropolen: Autofreundliche Städte machen Bewohner krank auf WiWo Green vom 13.08.2014.

„Obwohl Fahrräder inzwischen 15% des Hauptstadtverkehrs ausmachen, wird ihnen laut einer Studie der Agentur für clevere Städte nur eine Fläche von 3% zugestanden.“

Highway 2 With The Dudes
Here are a few shots I just got back from our roller coaster ride (of emotion) to Newcomb’s Ranch.  This is the day we learned they are (now) closed on Tuesdays and guess what day this ride took place…a Tuesday!  
Newcomb’s Ride Highlights-
- 7 hours without food (dummy move)
- First ride with Erin (cool dude with a cool bike)
- Chugging a V8 & a Slurpee back to back at the almost finish!
- Riding with brain-freeze from chugging a Slurpee
- Barfing after chugging a V8 & a Slurpee back to back :(
-Oinkster at the finish finish!
