"Bikes and cars don't always stop for red lights!" Crossing the Street - Trams Tip by Allyhando
Crossing the Street - Trams, Amsterdam: 42 reviews and 33 photos
Surprisingly when Amsterdam is a pretty cool place, people driving cars tend to be crazy - through redlights, through pedestrian crossings when the light is green to cross and speeding up the wrong side of the road - taxi's especially.
Don't step on the road unless it's clear or you're sure the cars are going to stop! Also, when you're crossing try to move quickly, as if the lights change when you're on the road cars will start coming towards you!
Loads of cyclists around who are fine - but still watch for them at crossings as many times they won't stop. Also some have a habit of coming up behind you withing ringing a bell - be careful!
