German parliament reviews bicycle turn laws
bicycle turn laws

Right on red included in German bicycle turn laws.

The Federal Ministry of Transport will review whether to give cyclists the green light to turn right on red at certain intersections. Pilot projects have already been planned in several German cities.

The review is in response to a request from the Green Party.  Currently, cyclists are legally required to wait for the light to change to green. Should they decide to turn on red, they face a fine of at least 60 euro ($63). Not to mention  the wrath of angry observers.
