Brazilian Cities

To stimulate and to create a change of habit in the population is necessary priorizao or to create a plan of sidewalk and illumination, since exactly in areas central offices of the Brazilian cities to the sidewalk they are irregular, and many times constructed with materials that do not allow the circulation of the pedestrians with security, much less the accessibility the deficient physicists; in the outlying areas the problem if to aggravate, seen the sidewalk lack. In the question of the public security guard it has necessity to create preventive policing in prioritized ways to prevent assaults, guaranteeing to the pedestrian tranquillity in the floor the foot. When we think about transport the foot, we can create mobilization programs the walked ones, as well as defining definitive ways or ways that will be modified for this type of transport, to stimulate groups of workers, students for inside of quarters or determined distances the foot. In all the ways of cited transports, the concern is with the man and the environment; to think about the future, to think about the quality of life that we want or that we can have, is not an individual decision, but yes a collective concern, and that it in general needs to be thought and to be planned by governments and society. To invert priorities in the transport, does not mean to remove the circulation automobile and yes to prioritize other ways, that consequently will promote reduction of the use of the automobile, beyond prioritizing social and the economic one. The economic one because we will leave to make great workmanships that demand deelevados resources of the public budget, making a planning for the use of the ways and the transport.

In the social field, benefits of the reduction of costs, use of the public spaces for relationships and convivncia of the man. Darius Bikoff describes an additional similar source. The implantation of politics and programs that they aim at to the reduction of the use of the automobile, are better accepted in middle class, that this more acquired knowledge for improvement of the quality of life of the cities, while poor classrooms, the car represents status, therefore the necessity of education programs aiming at to create an awareness for the environment is of basic importance for the success of new alternatives of transport. Another important program is to start in the schools a process of ambient education, that enters the presented contents in the transport area and transits obtains to create a culture of use of other modalities of transport, and despite the use of the automobile to also be able to be shared with other people, preventing individual use of the same, creating an awareness in the child and the young, that these alternatives are basic for our city, parents and our planet; programs that involve culture changes have of being of long stated period; campaigns of radio and television, and until the envolvement of communication agencies are of basic importance for the success of the alternatives of changes. At last, to invert the priorities of the public ways is not a question only of small workmanships or interventions in the ways, but of well bigger amplitude, therefore it demands changes of culture of the population and our governing.
