Synopsis of Bikes vs Cars
Bikes vs Cars depicts a global crisis we must talk about: Climate, earth’s resources, cities where the surface is consumed by cars. The bike is a great tool for change, but the interests who gain from cars invest billions each year on lobby and ads to protect their business.
In Sao Paulo where car sales are booming, bike activists push for radical changes. Once LA had the best public transport on the planet, 20% commuted on bike. A lobby driven development. In Toronto car dependent voters elect a mayor that wipes out bike lanes and trams.
In Copenhagen 40% commute by bike daily. Imagine if the whole world had numbers like this; an immediate climate effect, cities with a human scale.
