Safe Cycle Routes : possibility of mobility for the city of Campo Largo

After analysing the streets of the city of Campo Largo, we took notice of the lack of cycle paths, which hinders the mobility of cyclists in everyday situations such as going to work, school, leisure, among others. From the observation carried out internally at the Sesi Campo Largo school it was possible to detect the low rate of students who use the bicycle as a means of transportation together with other residents, and we used this information with the intention of optimizing the urban space by means of cycle paths that help in the traffic and safety of the population.

The growing problem with old vehicles

     In Brasil consumers who acquire new vehicles, have the concept of doing maintenance only during the warranty period of the vehicle. After the warranty period, they never repair their vehicles anymore, leaving them circulating without the ideal maintenance for the safety of the transit.

    The Project searches for an ideal vehicle deal in which a periodic maintenance is included and with cheap prices for both sides, fulfilling that the same vehicle can be driven safely for the user and society.
