    It is dangerous to try to cross Wetstraat. When the pedestrians have the green light to do so, they still have to be very careful because the cyclists ignore their red lights! If you point this out to them, they yell at you and barge away on their bikes at full speed - the same speed they had when approaching a crossing. Why do they have to drive so fast that they cannot even react to the red light? I must say that I am more afraid of the cyclists than the cars.
