The study makes no claims about why these slight shifts in traffic habits happened last year, but I'd like to think that it's because people are becoming more environmentally conscious and therefore riding bikes instead of driving cars. But that's probably a lot of wishful thinking on my part and doesn't explain the light van traffic increase. Still, the numbers show more people riding bikes, and that's a good thing.
