We need to get healthier as a nation

When we come out of lockdown is the perfect time to change the way we travel so that it is a gradual change. Reduce air pollution by drastically reducing transport and bicycles lanes/ routes improved for cyclists.

Why the contribution is important

This virus isn't going away and others may come, let's get healthier- have less air pollution and improve obesity levels by encouraging cycling in the cities and reducing the number of vehicles on the road. This could significantly reduce our death rate and prevent a lockdown the next time.

    Couldn't agree more - one stat that cannot be allowed to return to normal is the number of cars on the road. Preferrably this should come from changing attitudes as the general public see common sense but perhaps a few incentives and nudges from the government.
