China Moving to Ban Electric Bikes
According to the South China Post, some Chinese cities are moving to ban electric bicycles in favor of automobiles. Europeans have the luxury of hindsight in this regard, and are ironically reinstating pedestrian and bicycle dominance in urban areas. The motivation in China, of course, is the widespread belief that creating a massive car culture is the key to economic windfall for all. But there has to be a saner compromise.
