"No Jaywalking!" Helsinki Local Custom Tip by illumina
Helsinki Local Customs: 160 reviews and 166 photos
Finns ALWAYS wait for the green man / Walk sign before crossing the road, noone crosses when it's red even if there's no traffic - apparently it's a way to tell you've been in Finland too long if you wait for the sign to change even if the road is completely empty.
It's a complete contrast from other parts of Europe where you are taking your life into your own hands trying to get across the road!!
