Bicyclists and cars easily sharing the road in Amsterdam’s roundabouts

In the Netherlands, roundabouts are common and they’re carefully designed to support not only car traffic, but bicyclist and pedestrian safety.  These videos show how nice are the roundabouts in Amsterdam.

Biyclists are in a separated and dedicated lane that’s situated so that car stopped for cyclists do not block the roundabout.  It means there is normally a smooth flow of car and bicycle traffic easily and naturally sharing the intersection.
