Reduce road usage mass by doing more with and for bikes

Why focus on managing and charging cars, when you can remove half the problem or more by using bikes?  Less cars, and you can use more of the streets for bike paths. Then use smarter traffic solutions for smarter bike solutions too keep things moving and safe too.  Support electric bikes which demand less of the existing grid than electric cars when charging.  Subsidize local designers and manufactures to make better bikes, bikes for couples, bikes for small shipments, dry-in-the-rain bikes… Make bikes cool.  People will be healther, have prettier legs,  and probably get to work quicker.  It can work.
