AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (15 April 2000)–From May on cars in the Netherlands must grant cyclists the right of way when they are coming from the right. The rule holds for all intersections where no traffic signs or lights are present. A number of local and regional roads have to be adapted for the new regulation, which was initially planned to go into effect on 1 December 1999. The government decided however to postpone the date in order to better prepare Dutch citizens for the new regulation. The decision also gave the country’s various provinces time to adapt their intersections appropriately. (JW)
