Forget about cycling lanes. Now it’s time for duck lanes
In the UK ducks are getting their own lanes, because everybody deserves to enjoy the wonders of nature.
Forget about cycling lanes. Now, the new era of sustainable mobility begins with duck lanes. If once drivers should pay attention to cyclists, now cyclists and absent-minded pedestrians listening to music must have consideration of and share the space on British canals with those feathered animals.
Many temporary lanes have been painted on busy towpaths in London, Birmingham and Manchester to make room for ducks. The campaign is called Share the Space, Drop your Pace and was launched by Canal & River Trust an association that maintains a network of over three thousand km of towpaths winding across the UK, on the cry of “Better towpaths for everyone”.
Duck lanes have a symbolic function because obviously these birds cannot maintain the right position within the lines: they were designed to encourage people to remember that they are not the masters of the road.
