A fietsstraat (≈ "bicycle street") in Haarlem, the Netherlands. The theory behind these fietsstraten is that cyclists have priority and are encouraged to cycle more dominantly on these roads. In practice, however, Dutch cyclists and motorists alike don't particularly like sharing road space on these roads. Fietsstraten usually come with no stopping restrictions (cf. reminder traffic sign in centre) and almost all residential streets in the Netherlands are subject to a 30 km/h (20 mph) speed limit - fietsstraat or not.
