2. Create a policy that is inclined to helping the cyclist
Policies such as giving priority to the cyclist will help on promoting cycling. With policy and regulation that support cyclist, it is easier to create infrastructure and support the physical movement of the people. Moreover, the government also plays a crucial role in promoting cycling. Regulation around cycling needs to be done to protect the cyclist. However, this does not mean that government gives a limitation to the cyclist.
The Netherlands which is countries with a higher number of bicycle than the people does not make it mandatory for a short-distance cyclist to use a helmet (only the fast bike) because the cyclists have separate infrastructure than motor vehicles. This means instead of limiting the option and regulate the cyclist, the government need to facilitate the cyclist and make it easier for the cyclist to mobilize by creating a supportive environment around the bicycle mobility.
Another example is the green light wave for cyclists and cycle superhighways. The cyclists don’t need to drop their feet and can have an undisturbed journey in comparison to motor vehicles that need to stop every time cyclist pass by. This then motivates people to choose cycling than motor vehicles.
