Cyclists face many challenges every day including crowds, traffic lights, and speed differences with other road users causing dangerous situations with cars and trucks. Bikeapproach Safety Systems Corp. is developing an application for cyclists and motorists that helps to increase safety and to avoid car-bicycle collisions and injuries on roads.
It goes without saying that cycling is one of the cleanest and most energy-efficient forms of transportation. The number of people concerned about the ecology and choosing to cycle continues to grow every year. Much of this growth comes from personal concerns and the government's green transportation initiatives to make cycling and walking safer, more convenient, and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities.
Cycling plays a critical role in creating a green and sustainable community. Vancouver's municipalities are working towards making cycling safe and convenient for residents of all ages and abilities. The City's transportation plan, Transportation 2040, sets a target that two-thirds of all trips by 2040 will be made by walking, cycling or transit. Transportation 2040 also sets a target to improve safety and eliminate fatalities in bicycle-and-car accidents.
