In the heart of Budapest, where the Arpad bridge stretches over the Danube, a traffic safety issue has been vividly spotlighted by the Hungarian Cyclists' Club. The intersection, a silent witness to a fatal accident last summer where a cyclist was struck by a car while using the designated bike lane, is now under scrutiny. A stop sign has been installed, yet its authority seems to be largely dismissed by drivers.
Unfolding Drama on the Streets of Budapest
A five-minute video, created by the Cyclists' Club, dissects the situation in a stark fashion. Out of 24 drivers, a mere singular driver halted at the stop sign as a cyclist approached. The rest either slowed down slightly or completely disregarded the sign. This stark revelation underscores the urgent need for traffic safety and adherence to traffic regulations.
Drivers Obligation and Cyclists' Safety
The Cyclists' Club has taken the initiative to inform and remind that drivers are obligated to come to a complete stop at the intersection when the stop sign is in play. This is not a courtesy, but a legal requirement designed to ensure the safety of all road users, including the vulnerable cyclists.
