A safe Dutch mini-round about

From Chu Wa - "I want to share this Quicktime clip from Holland - perhaps useful to trigger some re-thinking about road designs - the traffic flows smoothly around the mini-round-about, there is no traffic light, no stop sign.

Starting from the middle of the clip a cyclist cuts through a few junctions without stopping, all cars naturally behave as they approach the round about".
