The Prague Municipal Court has overturned a measure imposed by the Prague 1 local authority to curb cyclists in city centre pedestrian zones, Czech Television reported on Thursday. The court upheld a complaint by pro-cycling association AutoMat and two other plaintiffs. Limits had been placed on bikes between 10 am and 5 pm on the lower part of Wenceslas Square, Old Town Square and the square náměstí Republiky.
Some politicians and residents had criticised the move, saying the authorities should support rather than restrict cycling. The Prague 1 town hall said pedestrians had been injured by bikes.
