This is incorrect and if you drive a car you should be aware that cyclists might come in the opposite direction. Especially in smaller communal streets cyclists are allowed to ride in either direction. It is legal if the street is marked with the following sign:
The people using the one-way street in the "blue" direction won't see the "forbiden entrance" sign you posted.

Below is what they will see when entering the one-way road. It may vary as it depicts the kind of oncoming traffic allowed. The really important part is the warning triangle on the left, it instructs to expect bidirectional traffic (including them turning left, i.e. potentially crossing your path):

I think cars are cautious around bikes - priority from the right is fairly confusing for many people.
Cautious, or maybe just reasonable. Most everybody here rides bicycles at least occasionally, including the car drivers, they will know from their own experience that it can be quite a nuisance to get back up to speed for the fast bicyclist. They're (almost) standing still already, so might just as well wait a few seconds and yield. Some even roll a bit to make their intent crystal clear. Otherwise a prudent bicyclist may well brake somewhat anyway, just in case.
