In one-way streets cyclists can be allowed to move in the opposite direction. This is a simple measure of traffic management which is very well accepted among cyclists because it creates shortcuts away from fast and heavy traffic. This measure proved to be safe even in the narrowest streets, if traffic is low and slow. The right of reverse direction for cyclists should be systemically applied throughout the city: this can become common and generally accepted traffic rule, and opens all traffic routes for cyclists. This paper analyzes the experience of developed countries in terms of facilitating two-ways movements of cyclists in oneway streets that can be applied on the roads in the Republika Srpska. There are some constraining factors in communities which are just beginning to build a cycling network as well as recommendations are made for additional measures with the aim of making the location of roadway self-explanatory. Benefits, weaknesses and alternative solutions have been mentioned, which relate to granting the right of two-way cyclist movements in one-way streets.
