Two interesting developments for transport:
The council in Massarosa, just north of Pisa, is introducing a pilot scheme which will see cyclists paid 25 cents per kilometre travelled, up to a monthly cap of 50 euros (£35). That means commuters who switch to two wheels could pocket up to 600 euros (£424) in a year. It’s said to be the first such scheme in Italy and its hoped more will follow.
More roads mean more traffic – even USA understands this http://www.vox.com/2014/9/8/6121129/bike-lanes-traffic-new-york
