|Acting out Energy Saving
It is not only a policy, it has been a habit followed by Yeh for years.
Though occupied by official affairs, on holidays Yeh would still ride his bike all the way up to Yangminshan. As an executor of policies, he practices what he preaches. He actively encourages employees of CPA to ride bikes to work and has organized a biking team. Yeh regards this a practical way to examine whether energy saving is being carried out in domestic constructions.
Finally, Yeh highlighted again the idea of reducing vehicles lanes and increasing bike lanes. He suggested that an advanced city would keep cutting down the number of its parking lots, and even its vehicle lanes. Then the extra space
||can be used by people or bicycles. But surely the premise is a mature mass transportation system. This idea of the director-general actually constructs the future goals of CPA, which is to plan the cityspace and transportation environment with the emphasis on user friendliness. On developments of cities, Yeh wants to transform the vehicle-oriented living space in the past to a humanized one; on national parks and land restoration, he wants to shift from a human-oriented thinking to a nature-oriented one. When the environment is healthy, people in it will be healthy, physically and mentally.
Then maybe we will find that as a part of the ecosystem, instead of fighting with the great nature, we should finally adapt to it.
