Bankaplein with its fountain and flowers is lovely and it should be a joy to all of us. Traffic is supposed to round it keeping to the right. But every so often I see cyclists, both young and old, rounding it keeping to the left – so against the flow of traffic. This is not just setting a bad example, it is dangerous! More than once I had to step firmly on the breaks of my car in order to avoid an accident. Why don’t we stick to the traffic rules, which were made to prevent accidents that may be fatal  for the cyclist and traumatic for the driver. Keep to the right, go with the flow and everybody will be able to enjoy our beautiful Bankaplein for many years to come.
