Dangerous railings in a Dutch town. This is Oosterwolde in Friesland, an example of the "shared space" ideas of Hans Monderman.

There are plenty of signs, railings like I've seen nowhere else over here, and more cars than usual for the Netherlands.

I guess that when you make somewhere as car friendly as this is you inevitably get illegal parking and that's the reason for the railings.

See also #12491 for another photo (+ video) of Oosterwolde or #12344 for a more usual Dutch town centre - with a lot of bikes in it.
