Policy from tragedy

Posted on: January 30, 2021

Fixed-gear bicycles, or fixies, are brakeless bikes which were banned on public paths and roads as of 25 January 2021.

The embedded article tells you what the policy change is, but not why. Late last year, a 13-year-old girl fell down six storeys after losing control on one such bike.

We seem to need need extremes of circumstances (like death) before we take action. We react instead of preempt.

Consider how hotels have started deep cleaning with UV and electrostatic misting in the wake of COVD-19 quarantine stays.

Will hotels continue to do this as the norm after the storm? Do we need another pandemic to remind us how to raise basic requirements of service and safety? Do we really want to return to “normal life” when we should be striving for better life?
