Utrecht was also the first Dutch city to have a rainbow zebra crossing. One alderman stated that waiting for these lights to change gives people time to ponder about diversity of sexual orientations.
Not the First!
Utrecht is not, however, the first European city to install these traffic lights, it has been done in Munich and Vienna. Now, we want more cities to follow.
P.S. Just a thought. Isn’t wonderful that children will cross at these lights and see diversity in action. I can’t think of the terror that right-wing parents will have – “O.K, children, on with your blindfolds as we cross the road!”
