What is the Radentscheid?

We have started a citizens’ initiative for better cycling infrastructure in Frankfurt. We are not part of a political party or an association. We hope that the cycling referendum will improve the quality of life of all citizens of Frankfurt and make our city even more worth living!

What is our goal?

Our vision is the following: people of all ages and abilities should have the opportunity to cycle in Frankfurt safely, swiftly and without fear. That requires a forward-looking traffic policy, good bike paths and safely designed roads.

How do we want to achieve this?

We want to bring about a referendum. This means that all citizens of Frankfurt that are entitled to vote can decide whether or not they agree with our demands. It is preceded by a petition: At least 3% of eligible voters (in Frankfurt this equals just over 15,000) have to sign a petition to bring about the referendum. We have surpassed this requirement by gathering 40,000 signatures!

What happens next?

The electoral office has confirmed that enough valid signatures were submitted. The legal department will now check whether there are any legal reasons that conflict with the petition. Based on this, the magistrate will make a recommendation to the city council. The city council can either accept our demands in their entirety or reject them. In the latter case a referendum will be held. The schedule for these steps is still open.
