Westend, Munich

Not taking the tramway for the way home from office, my path led through the smaller streets – less car traffic and more bikers. The Munich administration engages in many activities to make cycling through the city more attractive. Diverting the car traffic into the main roads by selective speed limits in residential streets as well as the limited (and therefore expensive) parking space helped to convince quite a number of citizens to complement the main family car with a bike instead of the 2nd and 3rd car, and even to use the bike instead of the car. So when you walk home through Westend, chance is you wouldn’t get overrun by a SUV, but more likely to be met by the agressive ringing of a bike’s bell when leaving the sidewalk without proper caution.
