A2: German Road Traffic Regulations (StVO) – what (new) options are available to local authorities?
The recast of the German Road Traffic Regulations (StVO) has provided local authorities with new options for promoting cycling – among them establishing cycling zones as well as parking spaces for cargo cycles, allowing right turns at red traffic lights or extending the trialling clause. This also entails new possibilities in the field of conducting traffic trials. This includes, for example, the establishment of modal filters or speed reductions. The speakers will indicate what (new) options local authorities and planners have to promote cycling.
