That’s Dictatorship for You
The Guardian reports that China is suddenly rediscovering the joys of urban bicycle transportation after a decade of motor mania:
The construction ministry announced on Thursday that any bike lanes that have been narrowed or destroyed to make way for cars in recent years must be returned to their original glory. This followed orders on Tuesday that all civil servants should cycle to work or take public transport to reduce the smog that chokes most city streets and urban lungs.
