Re: Re: The Velibs are coming?
The attached article from Figaro has some interesting points to make, in particular the possible link between the introduction of Velibs and the notable deterioration of safe cycling behavior, with increasing prosecutions. One cyclist in two is reported as behaving illegally. Jumping the lights being the most common fault, using mobile phones another.
Note also the very low share of cycle movements in Paris transport, despite the Velibs.
