Two videos: young cyclists and traffic lights

Here's two new videos from my rides last week.  Video about the Traffic lights at the southern end of the bridge over the River Oulu shows how the Dutch principles work in real life. There's only a few bridges over the river so they have a lot of traffic. Therefore putting the cyclists and pedestrians in a location where they are very visible to the drivers will improve the safety for a lot of people. In this case, the geometry of the 5-street intersection puts the cyclists about 10 meters in front of the cars. Definately not in a blind spot!

Another clip I posted on youtube shows some young cyclists around the town.
