driving woes

The traffic circle is a staple here, but four-way intersections don’t have stop signs. It’s so bizarre to me. People definitely don’t stop. Apparently driving laws dictate who goes when.

One of many reasons I can’t believe Americans are allowed to just show up and drive with a US license… The Dutch pay an outrageous fee and take mandatory classes to get a license in the country they’ve grown up in, while we get off the plane and figure it out (hopefully). Between the bus lanes, tram lines, car lanes, and bike lanes, I’m not sure you could pay me to drive in the city. (Both of these pictures are from Ijburg, which is a much more residential area. These aren’t typical.)
