Respect!

Respekt!

A new traffic sign has been invented in Hamburg. Respect! A local newspaper critized the new sign, because there were still too many signs. And hundreds of Euros must have been spend for creating and installing these new and useless signs. As reported cyclists should take more care about pedestrians on the green cycle route, that is used by cyclists and pedestrians. Accidents shouldn´t have been reported, but many complaints.

New traffic sign calls for respect
 But what´s the problem? The green cycle route connects a rapid transit station with a residential area and an international school. During rush hours there could be lots of cyclists going to work or to school. The route is layouted without seperation, and it goes down a light slope. A seperation between cyclists and pedestrians and appropriate space could have helped avoiding conflicts.
