The benefits of cycling

A recent British report encapsulates the value of cycling to society -17 billion saving to the NHS, increased mobility for low income families, decreased traffic congestion, reduced road deaths, increased retail sales, reduced air pollution and reduced demand on parking spaces. See report here
A guardian article provides some context for the report. See article here
Mandating that school children (or everyone else for that matter) wear reflective or flourescent vests might save their lives – on the other hand, from personal experience, I know that drivers don’t always see you reflective vest or no. Making the environment safer with dedicated cycle lanes would seem like a much better soluition.
