Imaged on the right is the whole centrum of the Netherland's fourth biggest city, including world's busiest cycleway and the NL:s busiest railway station.

Imaged on the left, just five kilometers from the location on the right, is basically just one intersection for cars.

The scale is same on both sides.

@janUnise it is indeed!

and fun fact: you can find similar pairs in many other dutch cities :(

@Stoori i find it personally surprising given the popular idea that the Netherlands are this big bike-and-pedestrian-friendly country

@janUnise @Stoori we still have a lot of cars. And lots of cars need lots of space.
