Re: The other way

Yeah they've had this for years. Reducing left turns (or turns that don't cross incoming traffic in your country) will inherently increase right turns (turns that DO cross incoming traffic in your country). This just sounds to me like a recipe for INCREASING vehicle collisions unless you're talking about only applying it at a tiny subset of junctions that are cycle accident blackspots* (and even then you'd be better off addressing the problem at the location.)

*queue someone informing that this is exactly what is suggested and that I didn't RTFA
