香港城市單車騎行問卷調查

你好!我們是賽馬會低碳創聚的單車創新小組,宗旨為推廣香港單車騎行,成員由香港單車同盟3+1單車同學會及幾位單車愛好者組成。

單車有著隨騎即行、靈活、環保低碳、佔用路面空間少等優點,在其他國家,如荷蘭、德國、美國紐約等大行其道,同時亦有以單車代替公共交通的趨勢。

 

我們希望透過這份問卷收集香港居民對於巿區騎行的看法及意見,同時召集更多有心人關注城市單車騎行相關議題。以下請你用3分鐘時間完成問卷,讓我們了解並分析騎行人士的看法及意見。

Questionnaire on Cycling in Hong Kong

Hi! We are a bike InnoTeam from the Jockey Club CarbonCare Open Innovation Lab (JCCOIL) formed by Hong Kong Cycling Alliance (HKCAll), 3+1 Cycling Group and cycling enthusiasts.

Bike has the merit of hop-and-ride, high manoeuvrability, environmental friendly, use less road space, and more. There is a trend for countries and cities like the Netherlands, Germany and New York to replace public transport by cycling.

 

We hope to collect views and opinions from you all who residents in Hong Kong on cycling in urban area. Meanwhile, we would like to call for attention from public on this topic. This questionnaire will take you about 3 minutes to complete, we will use such data collected for our analysis on cyclists views and opinions.

以單車作為交通工具的眾多好處之中,零空氣污染排放及無噪音污染是對城巿的其中兩個好處,這是對整個社會甚至地球的貢獻。

去年(2011)是香港有紀錄以來路邊空氣污染最嚴重的一年,而香港的主要空氣污染物是來自交通的排放。所以香港各界都應當認真檢討這城巿是否可以繼續讓這麼多的車輛(包括公共運輸的車輛)在城巿中行駛,並且認真看待單車及步行作為城市交通工具的角色;這是刻不容緩的事,因為按估計每年有3200人因空氣污染而提早死亡!

為宣揚香港渴求健康空氣的訊息,並鼓勵大眾多使用無空氣污染排放的交通工具,「健康空氣行動」(Clean Air Network )會於12月2日下午舉辦一個名為「綠悠遊 Clean Air Drive」的活動,活動集合一眾人士騎乘電動車、單車及其他零污染交通工具,由九龍灣零碳天地(九龍灣常悅道,MegaBox旁)出發,沿一條特別路線遊走,如果從高空向下望,該路線會畫出 A I R 三個英文大字,藉此宣揚香港渴求健康空氣的訊息。

來讓我們一起踏單車,或者用滑板、步行…參加這個有意義的活動,讓香港看見單車這交通工具如何能為香港的空氣質素提供一個真正零污染的選擇。

HKCAll has surveyed candidates in Sunday’s (9 Sept) elections for the Legislative Council for their views on cycling.

The results show that many strongly support the substantive development of cycling for Hong Kong.  Some are better informed than others, but this is an important time for progress in many areas, with important decisions being made about key development projects, such as West Kowloon, Kai Tak and Northern District, as well as the sluggish development of the New Territories Cycling Network.  Moreover, we believe that now is the time to address the yawning policy void that the government has with regards to cycling.

It is vital that the new Legco is able to press our government to implement the visionary policies we need if Hong Kong is to properly serve the increasing number of cyclists of all stripes, and more importantly to justify its ‘world city’ label with planning and administration that integrates cycling, to ease traffic congestion, facilitate personal mobility, improve the quality of our environment (air pollution, noise pollution, excessive concrete and roads) and raise health and wellness levels for our whole population.

See what the candidates had to say.

Exhaust fumes are twice as deadly as roads, study claims – Telegraph.

In a study reviewing pollution and causes of death in the UK, they have found that more people die as a result of pollution than die on the roads:

More than 5,000 people die prematurely from conditions like lung cancer and heart disease because of emissions, according to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Exhaust from aeroplanes cause a further 2,000 deaths annually while emissions from the energy and industrial sectors and pollution originating from Europe bring the overall total up to 19,000 deaths per year in Britain.

In contrast official figures state that 1,850 people were killed as a result of road accidents in 2010.

研究顯示:汽車廢氣較馬路致命兩倍 –《每日電訊報》

一個有關英國空氣污染的研究發現,空氣污染物較馬路更危險更致命。

麻省理工表示,超過5000人因為空氣污染引發的肺癌、心臟病等而提早死亡。

 

除了路面廢氣,飛機廢氣每年亦造成2000人死亡,而來自歐洲的能源及工業則進一步將英國每年死亡總數提升至19000人。

 

相較之下,官方數字表示2010年全年交通意外的死亡人數是1850人。

Next time you’re just minding your own business, riding your bike, and someone drives by and shouts something at you, perhaps the best reply is to smile, wave, and say “you’re welcome.”

As Jay Walljasper at Shareable Cities reminds us today, more bicycling is good news for everyone — not just cyclists:

Even if you will never ride a bike in your life, you still see benefits from increased levels of biking. More bicyclists mean less congestion in the streets and less need for expensive road projects that divert government money from other important problems. Off-road paths, bike lanes, sidewalks and other bike and ped improvements cost a fraction of what it takes to widen streets and highways. It’s proven that bicycling and walking increase people’s health and reduce obesity, which will translate into huge cost savings for government and a boost for our economy.

Policies that are good for bicyclists actually benefit everyone on the streets. Good conditions for bicycling also create good conditions for pedestrians. And what makes the streets safer for bikes, also makes them safer for motorists.

Higher gas prices (which have topped four bucks for the third time in four years) means more Americans are looking for other ways to get around. Bikes offer people more choices in transportation. This is especially true for people whose communities are not well served by mass transportation or where distances are too far to walk to work or shopping.

Kinda ironic that these are the activities that get targeted as “money wasters” by most governments around the world.
