A recent study has brought to light that riding a bike rather than driving a car could save billions when it comes to the cost of the health service and the money spent on problems concerning the environment. The cost of those who have bad health due to lack of fitness is increasing and the pollution caused by cars and other vehicles is also growing to a cost that the government cannot afford to pay.
Tons and tons of money is being spent in the health industry on those who are unhealthy and patients who are unfit. It is believed that cycling could reduce the detrimental cost on the health service. It could also help citizens become healthier which in turn would mean the health service spends less money on treatment and curing those who are not as fit as they should be.
The cost of repairing the environment after the pollution of cars and vehicles could also be greatly reduced if more people cycled instead of driving a motor vehicle. With less cars on the road the pollution and impact on the environment would be a lot lower and this would result in less money spent on reversing the implications that global warming brings with it. Restoring the environment back to its original state requires a lot of money and this could be massively reduced if less people drove each day.
