PAINT THE TOWN RED

Living France - - October News And Events -

As part of a se­ries of mea­sures to en­cour­age more peo­ple to cy­cle in the cap­i­tal, cy­clists in Paris are now not re­quired to stop at all red lights. Signs show­ing an up­side down tri­an­gle with a bi­cy­cle and an arrow have ap­peared at 1,800 junc­tions in Paris and in­di­cate that when the light is red, cy­clists may pro­ceed with cau­tion, car­ry­ing ei­ther straight on or turn­ing right. It is hoped this will make cy­cling in the cap­i­tal safer as many ac­ci­dents hap­pen when cy­clists get caught be­side lor­ries and buses at traf­fic lights.
