Netherlands School Bans Dropping Kids by Car, Everyone Bicycles

Found via BikesBelong, this is from David Hembrow’s blog about cycling in the Netherlands.  Recently, one local school banned vehicles from stopping at its curbs, effectively discouraging parents from dropping their kids off by car.  Even so, he claims the rate of car drop offs was pretty low, especially when compared to U.S. or UK trends.

Granted, the music in the video above makes it watchable, but can you imagine seeing bike traffic like that anywhere on our shores?  *dream*
