Changes in German traffic law loosen restrictions on cyclists

The German Cycling Federation (ADFC) has posted a page describing changes which remove some restrictions on cyclists. I have prepared a translation of the page.

Please keep in mind that translations do not necessarily reflect my own opinions.

I also have posted translations of other documents about German traffic law and cycling conditions.
