It was an engaging debate that the city council held on the bike path. Traffic officer karlheinz schmitt (CSU) was the first city councilor to speak up. On his vacation, he saw a bike path that ran directly along the road as a traffic lane. His conclusion: "so we have a very safe bike lane". After all, the road is also demarcated by a curb from the rhonexpress rail bike path.
He also said that the bike path had only been moved to make room for parking spaces along robert-katzer-weg. They were urgently needed for the thermal spa sinnflut. "You have to make compromises somewhere", said schmitt. In addition, a structural demarcation would rather increase the danger: cyclists could get stuck on a lander with their handlebars and cars with their rearview mirror. This estimate is in line with the opinion of the german bicycle club (ADFC), which was submitted to the city council.
