PODCAST – The thirteenth episode of On your rights, get ready, go! gives you a reminder of the traffic law and the behavior of all road users.
Can a cyclist ride in the opposite direction on a one-way street when there are no markings on the ground? In recent years, the practice of cycling in the city for daily trips has experienced an unprecedented development, whether in terms of the number of users or the development of dedicated infrastructure.
As for the question, the answer is yes, but not in every way. The rules actually allow you to cycle on a street in the wrong direction, even though no specific markings on the ground mention it. However, this authorization is largely unknown, both to cyclists and to other road users, especially motorists. The aim is of course to facilitate the exercise of cycling in the city by giving cyclists the opportunity to make routes without detours.
In this episode of On your rights, get ready, go!answers journalist Arnaud Saugeras to the question “Can a cyclist ride in the opposite direction on a one-way street when there are no markings on the ground?”. On your rights, get ready, go! is a podcast from the editorial staff of Le Particulier, presented by Arnaud Saugeras, and produced by Malika Moulai and Edith Tavignot. Benoît Campagne and Mahault Parent-Deschamps participated in the writing and production of this audio program. Julien Khunel made it happen. The sound design and editing of the episodes was provided by Bababam.
