Two views of the school run in Assen videoed by people who came on the CEoGB study tour.
I think it's worth pointing out that motorists have priority over cyclists at the crossing. However, the occasional toots you hear are from drivers indicating to cyclists that they can cross:
If you start the first video, wait 25 seconds and then start the second, then you'll see two views of the same scene synchronized.
This is what it looks like when cyclists truly don't come second best to drivers. This is what it looks like when there are genuinely "safe routes to school". This is what the Netherlands looks like forty years after the Stop de Kindermoord campaign fought for the safety of children.
Compare with the chaos that still exists in the road where lived in Cambridge.
