B. Schröter, S. Hantschel, M. Niestegge, H. Schüller, R. GerikeNews room

  1. Before-after video observation at 43 intersection approaches in nine German cities
  2. Analysis of the acceptance of the traffic regulation as well as qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the conflict level
  3. 80% of cyclists already turned right at red lights before the introduction of RTOR (and 93% after the introduction of RTOR)
  4. Only minor behavioural changes were observed, such as a lower proportion of critical time gaps (PET)
  5. The lowest PET values were observed between cyclists turning right on red and users coming from the left
