  18. 18. What Can Be Said and What Can Be Done Talk and decisions follow rules from what can be said, actions follow rules for what can be done, and we cannot expect that these rules will always be consistent.

  22. 22. Policy objectives 1) Cycling should be an equal partner in the mobility system. Users pay for the full external costs of motorised transport while the societal benefits of active mobility are fully taken into account in transport planning and investment decisions. In addition, it will show the path towards prioritising cycling over individual motorised transport. 2) Cycle use in the EU will increase by 50% in the decade from 2019/2020 – 2030. Its share in the transport modal split will be at least 12 % which means 0.48 cycle trips per person per day as an average. 3) The rates (per km cycled) for fatalities and seriously injured among cyclists will be halved in the decade 2019/2020 – 2030. 4) The EU should double its investments in cycle projects to 3 billion Euro during the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021 – 2027 (up from 1.5 billion Euro in 2013 - 2020) and aim for another doubling to 6 billion Euro during the 2028 – 2034 period.
