On September 21, 2016, more than 200 experts from all over Germany got together to exchange knowledge on the subject of "More cycling - but safe!" at the Federal Ministry for Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) in Berlin. Conclusion: Safety improvements for cycling require the joint action of all actors at various levels.

Common action by all actors at various levels is necessary

Representatives from municipalities, states, the federal government as well as associations discussed how bicycle traffic can be made safer and who should make a contribution. Not only the improvement of the infrastructure was addressed, but also possibilities were shown of how the growing share of bicycle traffic can be accompanied by a legal framework as well as research needs in the field of bicycle safety were identified.
