Car-Bike crashes do happen in the Netherlands; the response by the police and the public is what’s so different from here. Hint: the most vulnerable are given respect, not the most aggressive driving an inappropriate vehicle for the context.
In a place where many people are both motorists and cyclists, it makes sense that there is little patience for motorists who don’t recognize and value that they are the danger, not the people on bicycles or on foot.
We have a long way to go.
Reclaim the streets!
