Bucharest Needs Help

We recieved a cry for help in the Copenhagenize inbox today. Marian, from Bucharest, wrote simply, "Help us!"

And then included a link to this fantastic video filmed in the city. A review of the "completed" cycle tracks in the Romanian capital. Ish. Brilliant stuff from Optar.ro

Crappy bicycle infrastructure made by traffic planners who don't know the first thing about Best Practice, who don't ride bicycles for transport and who only look forward to the day when they can upgrade their automobile to a newer model is something that is well documented on the internet. What is happening in Bucharest, however, boggles the mind.
