Comment on the Power of the cyclist lobby: Huuuiii – the helicopter-cyclists

As a pedestrian, you look with envy at the Radlobby. The narrow bike path on the upper tree bridge to the Senator herself is expressed.

it Has actually to measure time, the width of the walkway on the upper tree bridge downstream? Admittedly, the oberbaum bridge is a rather bad example is luxurious arcades for pedestrians in this case. But not everywhere in Berlin, you can stroll so comfortably. And you can wonder as passionate a pedestrian sometimes, and quite envious about how quickly and effectively cyclists*in Berlin exert their influence.

There's a bike path will be built to narrow (15 inches – in the Handwerkermaß about a fist width with abgespreiztem thumb) and of the cyclist*inner lobby, consequently, heavily criticized. Prompt the competent Senator on Tuesday and praised remedy.

This is of course quite right – but from the perspective of senior representatives, the traffic light times of your choice, which also creates an older person more than to the middle strip, or from the point of view of parents, struggling for years without for a Zebra crossing or pedestrian traffic lights for the protection of the elementary or middle school their children (and, ironically, as helicopter parents defamed to be), but somehow also a bit bleak.

Clear: In the much-cited Berlin Traffic, it is first and foremost trying to push cars out of the city, and without question, important and the right reasons. The safety of all traffic participants, it is not but just. The speech is a turning point in the context of Transport – also in the taz of a "war on the streets": a picture that suggests that the wheel and drivers*go to the streets to bring as many of each group died, or at least to make it unable to fight and decimate the opponent. And a picture in the pedestrian*not happen. You are – as in the case of Wars, the population – collateral damage and, as such, of the two war parties is threatened.

the speech – a hideous image

Actually pedestrians*accidents inside the most common deaths in road traffic: 19 of the 45 Berlin road deaths in 2018 and pedestrian*indoor (cyclists*inside 11, drivers*goods, indoor 3, motorcycle drivers 9), 2017, and 13 of 36. But here, neither the victim ranking the hideous image of War will continue to be supported. On the contrary, it would be Desirable to depart from this in favour of a transport policy is peace policy, in which all traffic participants can leave equally that their concern for safety is taken into account, even without the influential political Lobby. Maybe it would help if the politicians*they had more time to walk.
