A side by side look to similar street situations in the London and Utrecht. The United Kingdom and the Netherlands have very similar street widths and the size of the buildings and of course the motorised vehicles and people are also very similar. Not so strange for direct neighbours. But how the streets are designed in both countries is very different. The Dutch design infrastructure with people walking and cycling in mind. In the UK motorised traffic seems the most important factor in how city infrastructure is built. see more: http://bicycledutch.wordpress.com/201... you can comment there, not here.
