Let us draw you attention to an initiative taken in Italy by cycling groups which appears in the latest edition of our sister publication Nuova Mobilità in Italian at http://wp.me/pXyfs-Ye.

“The campaign launched by Time cycling safety and recovery in Italy by a number of bloggers and informal groups is already beginning to get the first results. 61 parliamentarians from different political parties signed a bill that among other things calls for the allocation of 2% of the budget of the management company of roads and highways for the construction of cycling infrastructure and the adoption of the speed limit 30 km / h in all residential areas having no bike lanes.”
