@[email protected] Würde sich daraus schlussfolgern, dass der Wechsel zwischen 50km/h und 30km/h eher dazu führt dass sich 30km/h so richtig langsam anfühlen und deswegen so oft zu schnell gefahren wird? Also ein gutes Argument für flächendeckendes 30km/h anstatt nur vor Schulen, Kitas, etc.
But it feels important to share this lesson from the Netherlands: while bicycle lanes can make life in cities better, they can also easily reinforce the idea that streets are designed for fast-moving traffic. If there is no debate on what public space is for, they may simply become part of conventional car logic.
The idea of a 30km/h limit came to us from Germany. Put a 30km/h sign on a German road and the locals will stick to it. It’s not the same here.
According to André Pettinga. But let me assure you, almost nobody actually only drives 30km/h here in Germany, at least not nowadays. Traffic rules are more and more a mere suggestion to German drivers.
Victims of road violence come by car to an event commemorating victims of road violence, and no one sees how crazy that is. It's just a case of 'there's no alternative'. We can send rockets to Mars, we can clone animals, and we can electrify the whole world. But transforming traffic is beyond us.
