Less traffic, more cycling: boosting alternatives to car use
We are campaigning for action to rebalance out transport system – for better transport options for all and quieter streets for cycling.
We can all do our bit to drive less and cycle more, but the onus is on governments and councils across the UK to enable societal change, by putting policies in place and making proactive changes to our transport systems which help us to choose cycling, walking, wheeling and public transport rather than using a car.
It all starts with a change of mindset, and the Welsh and Scottish Governments are already forging ahead, although in different ways. The Scottish Government is committed to reducing car journeys by 20% by 2030, whereas the Welsh Government has introduced sustainability tests it will apply when considering future road building plans.
