To get more people in the saddle instead
of behind the wheel, Brussels minister
for transport and public works Brigitte
Grouwels and Brussels secretary of state for
mobility Bruno De Lille have launched a trial
project of cycle streets. In these cycle streets,
cyclists are allowed to use the whole width
of the road, as if it is a spacious bicycle path.
Motorists are still permitted on the road, but
they are prohibited from overtaking cyclists
and from going faster than 30kph.
