WASHINGTON, US (March 8) – Is the tide finally turning? It may seem so, as all over the US cycling is becoming a hot issue. Sky rocketing power prices ( well, for American conception that is) and growing concern about the place where we live, are now finally prompting the issue of safer cycling in the US. Fuelled by reports on cycle accidents, more and more local authorities are probing the idea of building designated bike-tracks. Not for fun and games this time, but to be used in commuting. Several high profile accidents have given the pro-bike lobby extra fuel – and now the whole of the US is positively bustling with a new élan to create safe lanes for cyclists. Already several laws have been under revision to allow cycles to be considered as vehicles…a must-be before any other change can be made.(MH)
