you Know this saying from your Childhood? "When it's Red you stop, Green you can go." That's not enough today for the education, unfortunately. I have to say to my daughter: "don't Cross the pedestrian crossing where it is parked. And no, my darling, you can't Bicycle to travel to school.“
It breaks my heart to have to say those things. I ride a bike and knows exactly what the insane risks she would be exposed to. It is a bitter Routine that you must find as a pedestrian in the morning on the way to school there is a gap between the car queue in case the Green is the road safe to cross. Amazing how many Turkish swear words I can think of in such situations for motorists. If it gets really dicey, I'll scream in German: "security, I need security!"
With my bike, I'm the Schlüterstraße in Charlottenburg. There were parked cars on the cycle lanes, so I had to Dodge on the roadway. Until here nothing Special. But directly behind me officials overtook me in a police car and drove more calmly.
in Order to clarify to you how it is in our car-full city, to the self-understanding of the bike, I want a passionate motorist from my circle of friends quote: "You've got enough money, why would you buy a car," he asks me every Time if I'm sweaty, but to be happy our Meeting. My answer: "I don't want a car." He then says in disbelief: "How can you do not want to drive a car?"daily mirror people for Free order
My father rose from the horse
I admit it, I hate cars. And, although I grew up in a Mercedes. My father rose 50 years ago from his horse, came to Germany and bought a Daimler. Twice a year, I went as a child, from Duisburg to the village of my parents. About since started my Auto-Trauma. I am pleased, if the diesel affair and scandals, something changes in our consciousness. Cars in the middle of a search in a city of millions, driving is still standing. You are not only annoying, but are so out of place, as is now the Smoking in Restaurants.
recently a person is once again deadly with the wheel in a car crash. Turn error it is, then sober up in the police statistics. Behind the number of a man who rose in the morning on his wheel and returned home to his family. More accidents, more injuries, more Deaths. It is sad. It makes you angry. In the last year, there were 45 pedestrian and eleven cyclists were killed on the streets of Berlin. But if Andrea Nahles answers the question, what bike part you would like: "The car that stands next to it", the way is still far. As long as the fine is cheaper than Parking and traffic controls will be conducted according to the random principle, nothing will change. And where the premium for the people who have abolished the protection of the environment, your car is actually? Well, without a Lobby, no premium.More about

in Front of my house, door, S-Bahn, U-Bahn, and three buses. I have sympathy for those in need outside of the city on the car, because the only Bus leaves only every hour. But the answer cannot be, even more cars will be allowed. The future of the city must be car-free, with more bike paths and a working transport. And I'm also like the bell on a Bicycle.
