Copenhagen is made for pedestrians. It has lots of pedestrian-only spaces, the streets have these really wide sidewalks, and in Copenhagen, pedestrians always have the right of way. You can be crossing the street anywhere and the cars will stop for you.
They’ll do that in Amsterdam too. Though that could be because you’re apt to be crossing the street backwards. And giggling.
But in Paris, cars always have the right of way. Even if the little green man says it’s okay to cross. Actually, in Paris, the little green man says “Okay – you can try – but –”
Florence is rather like Paris in its attitude toward pedestrians, because in Italy there are no sidewalks at all. Well, there are – but apparently they’re for cars.
