Be it traffic jams, noise, accidents and air pollution or environmental damage and the shortage of parking spaces: We are all feeling the consequences of our current traffic policies on a daily basis. And there’s one thing that most people can agree on: “It can’t go on like this!” But what exactly will need to happen in order to ensure that the transition to sustainable mobility can succeed? What are we at Croozer doing? You can find out here!
Ban cars from cities – problem solved! Unfortunately, it’s not that easy, because, when it comes to mobility, there’s a wide range of factors to consider. Moreover, we believe that we cannot make the transition to sustainable mobility by punishing certain individual modes of transport: we will all have to work together. Here you can learn more about the areas in which changes will have to be made:
Carbon emissions are extremely detrimental to our climate and have far-reaching, long-term impacts, such as global warming. In order to achieve the climate change objectives, road traffic emissions will have to be reduced to almost zero, according to Anders Levermann from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.
According to the German Automotive Club (ADAC), there were 346,500 hours of standstill on German roads in 2021 – a stressful reality for all road users. If more people chose other forms of mobility over motorised private transport, the number of traffic jams would also be significantly reduced.
Our streets are full, loud, hectic and often not very nice to look at. Through the redesign of public spaces, the attractiveness of our streets could be improved, and new possibilities of use created.
With our bicycle trailers, we are already making an important contribution to emission-free transport in everyday (family) life. However, that’s not enough for us: To ensure that more people can make the transition to cycling, the framework conditions, like cycling infrastructure, bicycle safety and promotional services, will have to be appropriate. Because, regardless of how impressive our products are or how much you love cycling – if you don’t feel safe on the road, you won’t choose the bike.
It’s hard for us as individuals to make a difference, but there is power in numbers! This is why we are a member of various organisations) like the ADFC (German National Cyclists’ Association), NiMo (Network intelligent Mobility) and AGFS (Association for Pedestrian and Bicycle-friendly Cities, Townships and Districts in North Rhine Westphalia), and why we are fighting for a bicycle(-trailer)-friendly transport system. Political changes don’t happen overnight. Therefore, we will need a high level of commitment and patience.
Many people find it difficult to give up the comforts of a car-dependent lifestyle. They ask themselves, “How would I transport my groceries, where would I park my bicycle and trailer, and can I ride my bike in the rain and still reach my destination without getting drenched?” You can find the answers to all of these questions on our blog!
Space is precious, and thieves are clever, especially in the city. But none of that matters, because our bicycle trailers can be folded up to a compact size for easy storage – be it in the garage, the cellar, the hallway of your building or even your flat! You can also easily transport the trailer in the boot of your car when you need it for your big cycling holiday.
For a bicycle trailer, you don’t have to buy a new bicycle, but can simply hitch it to your existing bicycle – or even to various bicycles, depending on which family member currently needs it. We offer more than 30 hitch varieties, and the special Click & Crooz® technology makes it possible to quickly and easily hitch and unhitch the trailer with a single click.
There is still a long and arduous way to go until the transition to sustainable mobility becomes reality. But we at Croozer believe strongly in this transition and will continue working hard to make it happen!
