  Bicycles in front of San Pietro
by Manara

It is not strange that bicycles are so much used in flat places: the Netherlands, Denmark ... and Emilia-Romagna.
In Parma you can be sure to see people riding bicycles even in the worst weather, so imagine how it is in the good season!
Unfortunately cyclists seem to be the most undisciplined category of road users in this city. They ignore all the rules: they ride on the wrong side of the street or on pavements, talk on the phone, turn off their lights, never stop at pedestrian crossings. Are they authorized to do so? Of course not, but the local authorities are so keen in reducing pollution that the local police have instruction to tolerate most of cyclists' infractions.
For the above reasons: always pay attention to bicycles, because you may run into them in the most unexpected places.

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
