The typical European car is parked 92% of the time. It spends 1/3rd of its driving time looking for parking. Its 5 seats only move 1.5 people. 86% of its fuel never reaches the wheels, & most of the energy that does, moves the car, not people. #CityMakingMath

Still think drivers pay their way & people on bikes are “getting a free ride?” If commuters had to pay for their impact on society, drivers would pay 87 cents/km. People on bikes would GET 25 cents/km.

Commuting by bike saves society money. #CityMakingMath

”The plan is that each citizen riding the bike to work will receive 19 cents per km. This innovative financial scheme is aiming to bring new #Dutch cyclists to reduce road congestion.”

That’s about how much cycling saves society anyway. #CityMakingMath
