At the busiest intersections in Groningen, all bicycle traffic lights in every direction turn green at the same time. As 57% of all traffic in Groningen is done by bike, there can be over 100 bicycles crossing the same intersection. It looks very chaotic, but there are hardly any accidents; the right of way is given -and taken- through a very complicated system of speed and eye contact. Food for psychologists.
