Prevent traffic accidents: review of right-turns without traffic lights

With this motion (No. 723), the city council is instructed to review all “free-flowing right turn lanes” (lanes that allow turning right without traffic lights, where pedestrians and cyclists are sometimes put at risk).

As a first step, all free-flowing right turn lanes in Frankfurt will be recorded and assessed to determine which ones are particularly accident-prone.

Those free-flowing right turn lanes identified as accident hotspots will be given priority and a concept for their redesign will be developed to mitigate the risk of accidents.

The city council is to report on the progress of the project every two years until its completion.

Volt Frankfurt: the political party

Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.

Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions. 

We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
