Sustainable Living Show, November 2, 2009
Today’s Sustainable Living Program was about alternatives to the car. First we talked to Rob Mears, a Light Electric Vehicles (LEV) dealer in the suburbs of San Francisco. He’s created a great website with everything you’d want to know about the topic of LEV’s www.electric-bikes.com. Next up we had Karen Kress, with the Tampa Downtown Partnership and a local bicycle advocate. Also, Alan Snel, the Director of South West Florida Bicycle United Dealers (SWFBUD) joined us to talk about local bike related issues. We spent a lot of time talking about bike safety. Some of the main safety issues are: riding in the same direction as traffic, not riding on the side walk, stopping at all stop signs & lights, riding with a helmet, and bicycles must obey all traffic laws same as cars.
