The coronavirus crisis forces citizens to limit their commutes to work. Therefore many residents decided to use their bikes rather than cars or public transport. This resulted in cyclists demanding more space on the roads to physically distance.
Authorities in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin, Germany, therefore temporarily widened cycle lanes to ensure the required 1.5-meter distance apart. They use removable tape and mobile signs to mark out the expanded lanes. The first successful trial phase showed that the measure had improved cycling safety while not hindering traffic.
