No Bicycle Parking

No Bicycle Parking
There was a photo competition hosted by a newspaper years ago wherein people were invited to send in their interpretation of 'Danishness'. The winning photo was a bicycle parked in front of a 'No Bicycle Parking' sign.

Now, above, I finally have my own version. Love it.

No Parking Sign in Copenhagen
Although I did take this one a few years ago. The sign reads, "Bicycle Parking Prohibited".

So won't the reverse psychology thing also work for bike helmets?

I'd say: typical Dutch.

I thought the Danes were known for following the rules? Don't you guys kind of freak out at the American tendency to jaywalk so much?
