Data Are Based On The Number Of Accidents Involving Cyclists Between 2012 And 2014. ParanaguÁ Has About 100 Thousand Bicycles.
Paranaguá recorded a reduction in the number of accidents involving bicycles in 78% in the last three years. The data are results of a survey released by the Municipal Security Department, through the Municipal Department of Transit (Demutran).
Mayor Edison Kersten and Secretary Cícero Alves Fernandes celebrated the results and pointed out improvements in city signaling and installation of cycle paths as motivators for positive numbers within the current urban mobility policy.
In 2012, Paranaguá registered 99 accidents involving cyclists, against 52 in the following year. In 2014 it was only 14.
“There is no question of the numbers, which are quite clear about the reduction in the number of accidents. We only have to celebrate, and although there is criticism from a minority, it shows that we are on the right track, investing in cycle paths to give more safety to our parnanguaras who use the bicycle as a means of transportation and leisure, “said Mayor Edison.
According to Secretary Cicero, it is estimated that in Paranaguá around 100 thousand bicycles are circulating. Because it is a flat city with no places with slopes or slopes, many people choose to cycle to work, shop or look for other services, for example.
“Using a bicycle is healthy, it does not pollute the environment and it has become an important alternative to improving urban mobility and thus providing safer traffic. In addition, our geography helps a lot”, commented the person in charge of the Municipal Secretariat of Security.
Demutran is also investing in cyclists’awareness, because there are still some cyclists who insist on not using the bike rails where the safety device is available.”These cycle courses have given a very positive result and we will continue to invest more and more in this, so that our citizens have more security,” added Secretary Cicero.
