The Level of Traffic Safety Is Proportional to The Level of Citizenship And Education of A People

I asked several women why don’t pedal on the streets. More than 80% said it was due to lack of security.

The security to which they referred is 100% linked to aggressive and disrespectful with that drivers drive their cars through the streets of the cities.

For this the challenge becomes much greater, because it is not enough to invest only in bike lanes, it is necessary to invest in citizenship and education campaigns.

It is a fact that people are becoming increasingly impatient, intolerant and therefore aggressive. Fail to realize that the one subject to drive a car in metropolises invariably will face long traffic jams. Is inexorable.

No citizen can control traffic, improve it with shouting and name-calling, with buzinação and aggression.

The only thing that is under the control of the driver’s control of himself, a decision he can make between feeding the sense of irritation, frustration, aggression, anger or clearly understand that the chaotic traffic of large cities is a problem to be solved in the long term, and that all people who are on the streets and avenues are they, cars, bicycles, motorcycles and/or exactly all, have the same rights.

Is under the control of the driver understand that under a bike there is another human being like him, with the same rights, the same dreams, the same will and that deserve to be respected.

The aggressive behavior of drivers is no longer related only to men, women also adopted a similar stance. Make an invitation to women who feel powerful to fly a car violently, often putting their lives at risk, to come feel the true power under a bicycle. The bike gives you freedom, and a real sense of power. The power of the Director, the power of resilience, the power to get where you want to own physical effort and determination.

How to make the streets safer? With much respect, with a lot of citizenship, with a lot of education and love for your fellow man.

Women who dropped out of the car to use the bicycle as a means of transportation, realize that life can be and is much more fun, more rewarding on the saddle of a bicycle.

Celso Kassa, sports consultant and personal biker, lived in Japan for 16 years and 2 years returned to Brazil. It ensures that, with respect to the use of bicycles as a means of transportation, the big difference between Brazil and Japan is citizenship and respect for the cyclist. The bike is considered a means of transport and all the respect as any other vehicle.

“In Tokyo, for example, there are no bike lanes, bikes roam freely through the streets sharing space with cars and motorbikes. Women called to office ladies use bicycles as a means of transportation. Women dressed in clothes of nylons and social high heels often use two bikes on the way home from work. They have two bikes, a used home from the train and another bike from the train station to the door of the Office., “says Celso.

Here in Brazil it confirms that the vast majority of women fear the lack of traffic safety, but ensures that it is possible to increase significantly the safety if the cyclist knows how to behave on the bike in the middle of the streets and avenues.

More than 80% of the women who did the course with me began cycling as a form of exercise. After the second or third class if excited and start to plan and ruled out the use of the bike as means of transport. “Several of them have already abandoned the car and began to use the bicycle as a means of transportation”, concludes Celso.

The physiotherapist Ana Maria Perez Cardenas, who works with home care, after a trip to Holland acquired the habit of cycling. Returning to Brazil began to use the bike for some activities, like going to the fair and the places closest to your residence. Used bike in less movement as Saturdays and Sundays. Anne told you don’t forget a scene you saw in Holland, a woman on her way to a party, wearing a black dress with stockings, high heels and umbrella, because it was raining. She told the Prince of Holland have as habit to take her son to school on his bike.

With these examples it is clear that cycling goes beyond education, citizenship, culture. Cycling is a style, a sensible and pleasant option of life.

Ana Maria said that after a medical problem noticed the need for exercise, to keep moving. How did the attendances near your residence decided to make the journey of your House until the patients walk. After a period the distances got longer and she decided to use the bike definitely as your means of transportation.

“The important thing to ride safely in traffic is becoming visible, use a yellow reflective jacket. Is made of a very thin, lightweight fabric, specifically for signaling the cyclist, recommends Ana Maria.

Use the bicycle as means of transport is a process. Should begin gradually to feel safe to travel long distances. “Cycling has increased my balance and my visual perception, not just for cycling, but to other situations as well. Biking in addition to well-being that I feel I’m a lot happier, “she concludes.

Cleber Ricci Anderson, cyclo-activist, owner of Anderson bicycles and Metro Newspaper columnist, agrees that power cycling safely through the streets is a matter of citizenship, education, culture and kindness. Cleber which is a profound scholar and researcher on the subject, there are many years developing a work focused on the guidance of persons wishing to use the bicycle as means of transport.

“It is necessary to do a little planning before you just take the bike and go out pedaling through the streets. It is necessary to know the rules of bicycle-related traffic, it is necessary to know the recommended routes of your exit point to the destination. Usually the route will be done on a bike will not be the same as you do with the car. With the bike ideally, use alternative routes and less movement. “, recommends Cleber.

To make life easier for the cyclist, Cleber developed the Guide to Bike on the street. In this guide the cyclist will find all the information and tips fundamental to be able to ride a bike safely through the streets of your city.

“I recommend that you make a cyclist planning your route. After planning one must walk the path in a quieter day, on a Sunday, so make sure you have set the correct route. There is an excellent route guide on the internet, is the Bikemap.net. In this guide there are many routes already drawn and it is possible to plan, draw and write a personal route. “, concludes Cleber.

“Use the bike as my mode of transportation for 3 years, but I have gained more confidence in the last year, after meeting and plan better routes and walk better after having participated in a course of urban pedal”. comments Ludmila Chai, a sociologist and Professor of French.

Ludmila, lived many years in Florianopolis and wore the bike in all activities to go shopping, to go to schools, among others.

“Due to the lack of culture of citizens the woman faces a lot of difficulties to have the bike as your means of transportation. There is prejudice and disrespect. What bothers me the most is the lack of some drivers and motorcycle boys. The moto boys make many jokes and some even try to physical contact. It is unfortunate because it is clear that the general population is not ready to have a cyclist on the street and especially if this cyclist’s wife. My family encourages me a lot, they care too much about my safety. Get more criticism than encouraging, but still not leaving the bike for nothing. “says Ludmila.

“The important thing for cycling on the street is planning. It’s all very simple, just to organize and search the route. Confidence increases as you become familiar with the route. “sums up.

“The way women see cycling day-to-day is now guiding the city planners interested in deploying networks of bike lanes. Women riding is the best indicator of how pedalável is located in the town. In general I agree that women are one of the thermometers of the ciclabilidade of the cities. Are more fragile, more susceptible to urban violence and in traffic. The more you use the bike, the city better for everyone! This is a thing that our councilmen and mayors need to think if I ever get to cogitate on deploy cycle paths: follow women! “comments Rogério Fagundes milk, Industrial chemist by the UFPe/Recife-PE, master of Eng.de materials by UFSCar/São Carlos-SP, urban cyclist and cicloativista.

I conclude that the formula for the pedal is the combination of education, citizenship, respect to the next, route planning and knowledge of basic rules.

A skirt and high heels, women facing the traffic on two wheels are agents of transformation. Very female, without feel fragile and/or unprotected, these women save time and money, cooperate with the environment and to spare, and beauty health gain.
