BICYCLE - AN EFFECTIVE SOLUTION TO RESERVE GREEN, CLEAN AND SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENT

Nguyen Duc Thanh

Abstract


At present, environmental pollution is increasing in Vietnam in particular and in the world in general, and it is a ringing alarm. Humans have caused too many negative impacts on the environment, resulting in a series of pollutions such as water, land, especially air pollution. Increasing the number of vehicles that are uncontrolled closely causes frequent traffic congestion and the emission of more harmful gases. According to statistics, 70% of air pollution is caused by exhaust gases from cars and motorbikes. These toxins are factors that reduce memory, cognitive ability, coordination between the eyes and hands, stress and increase the rate of cancer... Confronting the situation, people, civil servants, especially students, need to establish healthy traveling habits through the use of bicycles as a practical solution to promote health, contributing to restrict environmental pollution as well as reducing traffic accidents.
