In addition to the right-on-red rule that has also been introduced in the Netherlands, Belgium will be introducing the straight-ahead-on-red rule as well.

This is a rule allowing cyclists to ride straight ahead through a red traffic light, provided they do not cross other streams of traffic. In actual practice this means that the rule will go for T-junctions where cyclists continue straight ahead. A sign with a bicycle and an arrow – a concept of which is now in circulation – will indicate where this is allowed. Implementation of the rule will be left to local authorities. The Belgian Institute for Traffic Safety (BIVV) has already voiced regrets about this issue. The BIV fears such a rule will reinforce ideas among many traffic participants that cyclists can do anything they want.
