As of May 1, 2001 the regulation ‘priority for cyclist from the right’ has been introduced, as part of Startprogramma Duurzaam Veilig. The regulation went with the uniformisation of priority regulation and was not primarily meant as a road safety regulation. In the first full year after introduction road safety has therefore not been increased, it appears. For cyclists the situation has even worsened: more serious accidents.
In Denemarken wordt gekleurd asfalt gebruikt om rechtsafslaand verkeer attent te maken op rechtdoorgaande fietsers.
