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.
