Está sendo votado agora o #PL3267/2019 que faz alterações no Código de Trânsito Brasileiro. O texto do substitutivo é melhor do que o PL original. Mas, ainda tem uma mudança inaceitável para a segurança no trânsito: o aumento do limite de pontos na carteira. Segue o fio.
✅CTB: limite máximo de 20 pontos na carteira por ano.

⚠️#PL3267/2019: limite máximo de 40 pontos na carteira por ano.

⚠️Substitutivo: limite máximo de 40 pontos ou 30 pontos (se cometer 1 infração gravíssima) ou 20 pontos (se cometer 2+ infrações gravíssimas) por ano.
Está comprovado que um sistema de pontuação rígido muda o comportamento de motoristas e contribui para a queda das mortes no trânsito, reduzindo em 11%-40% o cometimento de infrações e consequente redução de 15%-34% de mortes no trânsito.

New study by @RachelAldred and colleagues drawing on four official data sets for England for 2005-15, analyses the risks posed to other road users from bicycles, cars and taxis, vans, buses, lorries and motorbikes per billion vehicle kilometres travelled.

mrc-epid.cam.ac.uk/blog/men-more-…
The researchers found cars and taxis were associated with two-thirds of fatalities to other road users, but lorries were associated with more than five times as many deaths for each km driven, with a similarly high death toll for buses.

#RoadSafety
At the other end of the scale, cycling is relatively safe for others: it was associated with fewer deaths to other parties per km ridden than all the other types of transport, with just one other party death per billion km cycled.

@narendramodi Please give 50% of cabinet positions to women. #CabinetShakti @tarauk
@narendramodi @tarauk India's labour force has just 27% women, please help us in increasing the numbers by implementing the existing laws and changing the ones that badly need to changed. #WomensDay, then there will be many more #SheInspiresUs

Around 1.35 MILLION people die each year because of road traffic crashes.
Ministers from over 100 countries will meet to agree on new global #RoadSafety agenda to halve road traffic deaths and injuries by 2030 bit.ly/2S5m9iM
It is an opportunity for the 🌍 to embrace a new agenda to radically reduce the deaths & injuries due to road traffic collisions and improve access to:
✔️ safe
✔️ affordable
✔️ accessible
✔️ sustainable
transport systems for all.

Every 24 seconds, the 🌍 loses:
a child
a father
a mother
a brother
a sister
a friend
a colleague...
These deaths could have been prevented.

Remember those who died.
Support those who survived.
Take action to save lives.

Two years ago today, a hit-and-run dump truck driver struck Clayton Barnard, dragging him 25m and killing him. Witness: "He...was gasping for help and air. I think he wanted to just have someone hold his hand…and he died shortly after.” #TODeadlyStreets #RoadViolence #WalkTO
Clayton was 36 with a loving family, wife, and bright future. He was going to apply his paralegal degree to help immigrants. He did not deserve to die like this. His family did not deserve to lose him in such a senseless, preventable way. #TODeadlyStreets

The driver, Roshan Navacodi, 38, of Toronto was charged with fail to remain causing death, and careless driving. Fail to remain can be fined $500-$2500, possible license suspension less than 2 years, possible prison sentence less than 6 months. mississauga.com/news-story/804…

Ah yes, @RDiManno and @TorontoStar. Quite insightful. #RoadSafety advocates are fighting for *convenience* for vulnerable road users. After all, if planning an unexpected funeral isn't a bit inconvenient, we don't know WHAT is!

#RoadViolence #BikeTO #WalkTO #VisionZeroTO
Our member Kasia sometimes still thinks of how inconvenient it was to be handed her husband Tom's possessions in a paper bag, and then not only have to struggle against crushing grief herself, but also help her two children grieve their father. thestar.com/news/crime/201…
Our member David Stark also occasionally remembers the inconvenience of being handed his deeply beloved wife Erica's clothing, stained with blood. Their three boys, now that they think about it, do find it inconvenient that their loving mother is dead. bayview-news.com/2016/12/driver…

Hey @NACTO #NACTO19. Before you fawn over Toronto's leadership, we have seen MANY pedestrians preventably killed in recent weeks. This woman, killed yesterday, might have been someone's mom. cp24.com/news/woman-str…
This one, Friday, someone's grandpa? toronto.citynews.ca/video/2019/09/…
Imagine sitting for days by the side of a dangerous arterial, holding a sign hoping for the hit-and-run driver who killed your vibrant, beloved daughter to come forward? Knowing there is still no crosswalk planned to address the TTC desire line? #NACTO19 thestar.com/news/gta/2019/…
#RoadViolence is so rampant and destructive that many have called for a state of emergency. thestar.com/news/gta/2018/…

This is a thread, and Public Service Announcement- It might help you save a life (even your own).

Exactly a year ago, my cousins Rediet and Bereket were driving our uncle Seife to the airport. My uncle Seife spent his vacation in Ethiopia with his wife and kids. (1/12)
They were headed to the airport to return to Germany. His wife and kids were in another car.
At the airport, all arrived except for Seife, Rediet and Bereket. No one picked up the phone despite many calls. (2/12)
All suspicious of the worst-case scenario, they roamed through the streets of Addis Ababa in all different routes, trying to find them. As one family described it, they came across people gathered in the backdrop of loud sirens, bright blue/red lights, and ambulances. (3/12)

Thanks to @turo I'm renting a #TeslaModel3 during my visit to Silicon Valley - certainly a different experience than traditional #carrental agencies #future #zeroemission #electriccars
Gone to Tesla's HQ in Fremont, California to try the supercharging there. It's supposed to be much faster than before.
I had hoped the Model 3 would charge at the new rate but it didn't happen

Kicking off my #aashtoAM tweeting with a few relevant tweets from #WalkBikePlaces below. And really, you should just go look at that whole thread if you work in transportation.
Taking @RelayBikeShare in Atlanta bike infrastructure. Raised path an interesting experience--I like it. Celebratory 100-mile marker a nice touch--recognizes progress. #AASHTOam #infrastructure #BIKES TO #bikeshare

Kicking off #WalkBikePlaces with an infrastructure tour on @BlueBikesNOLA. Several under way now; I'm on the one that looks at public art, placemaking. #bikeNOLA
First stop: Jackson Square, National Historic Site, named for Andrew J. Led battle that saved NOLA in 1812 but owned enslaved people. Should his statue come down? #WalkBikePlaces
Beautiful murals! Families of Plessy and Ferguson reconciled with art in celebration. Studio BE right across the street--big studio space in covered warehouse. @BlueBikesNOLA station right here at park.

We now have four more #Galileo satellites in orbit, covering the whole world on a permanent basis!
Good news for transport, energy, agriculture and many other economic sectors.
What benefits will it bring to Europeans?
Thread on #EUSpace 🛰️
#Galileo is now integrated in every new car model sold in Europe, supporting the eCall emergency response system.
From 2019, it will be integrated in digital tachographs of lorries to ensure the respect of driving time rules and improve #RoadSafety.
80% of farmers use satellite navigation for precision farming.
The EU's satellite navigation programme will help farmers in many ways, such as monitoring what is happening on the ground, measuring their field or making the most of virtual fencing for livestock. #EUspace

Before you RT this catchy infographic, a thread--
#RoadSafety #VisionZero #dataviz
Infographics work. I clicked. My first response: Catchy title but the piece provides zero basis for the statement. Data-driven safety improvements are essential--so where's the data? This could have been so much more. #RoadSafety #visionzero
Dug a bit. Googled law firm credited on map. Got thedrive.com/sheetmetal/144… telling me it's @NHTSA "accident" (sic) data for "automobiles/pedestrians". Where are bicycles/motorcycles? More Google. #CrashNotAccident #RoadSafety #VisionZero

Pilot in BC Canada: @velometro 3-wheeled enclosed #ebikes operating as shared vehicles. Think Car2Go+bike. Geofenced to keep off pedestrian walkways. #TRBAM
If @velometro classified as bikes they can be in bike lanes but you couldn't park these at a bike rack. Lots of policy issues to be worked through. #TRBAM #bikeshare (?)
Traffic operations questions created by low-power vehicles that aren't quite bikes. If they operate (maybe in general motor vehicle lanes) + you want smaller vehicles used for urban delivery + working for bike mode shift, what happens? #TRBAM #LEVs
