As you may know, in Holland, their primary transportation is bicycles.

Most bicycles have pedal brakes; bikes stop when you pedal backwards.

That brake is not familiar in Japan, we have bikes with brakes under the handle; bikes stop when you grip the bars.

The Dutch bikers have top priority, so car drivers and pedestrians always have to pay much attention to bikers who drive recklessly.

I heard that an accident happens the most is that bikers bump into car's doors when car drivers opend it withought checking bikers.
