影片中可以看到 紐約市政府的單車道規劃與三種單車道路權的分級方式,
你可以看到他們是真的把單車當做一種「交通工具」看待
還設立了"Ride the City" Website讓人找到最安全的路徑且事先了解路徑上的單車道種類

台灣自行車早已雖蔚為風潮,但相關法令配套(ex宣導騎腳踏車戴安全帽、自行車路權空間設計)卻仍在起步。
咱們政府現階段都把單車單純的當作休閒運動器材,且欠缺自行車路權空間設計
一昧的把單車道規劃在人行道上,兩者重疊的結果就是導致單車變成一種排擠行人的惡霸
造成行人無法安心悠閒地漫走在人行道上;單車騎士也得隨時閃躲行人~
加上與其他車種混流等行駛空間的不友善,結果就是落的兩邊均不討好的反效果。

且各縣市單位談到單車政策也都只停留在「休閒為主、運輸通勤根本沒在提....」
若真到達到節能減碳的效果,除了把單車當作休閒器材外,勢必還得把它當做代步工具,融入日常生活
感覺~油價高漲似乎並不全然是一件壞事嘛~ 哈哈!,相信自行車通勤是擋不住的趨勢的!

期望台灣出現如此完善的單車專用道,讓越來越多人願意以單車通勤,不僅環保又達到運動效果
只是滿街亂竄的機車成了設立單車專用道最難克服的問題了!


Bike lanes: In some cities people are literally dying to have them and some people go so

far as to mark their own. Here in New York City, it feels like every time I get on my bike

there is a new bike lane - sometimes on the left, sometimes buffered, and sometimes

completely separated from automobile traffic.  To understand these lanes, I had the

opportunity to go for a ride with the NYC DOT bicycle boys. They explained the classes of

bike lanes and showed off some of these inventive facilities.  You can use
"
Ride the City"

to find a safe bike route in New York City and watch this video to see what lanes are used

on your route.
