Why is there a lamppost in the middle of a bike path?

Back in 2015 we told you about a woman who got a lamppost on the head while cycling in Zoetemeer. This time around, almost two years after this incident, the city of Schiedam has placed a lamppost right in the middle of a bike path (see pic).

The story goes that the bike path used to be a foot path, so it made sense to have a lamppost there. However, now the lamppost is waiting for a cyclist to crash into it. “Something went wrong in the planning”, said a spokesperson – well duh. Apparently the lamppost has a fence around it and will be moved, so that’s good news.

It just goes to show you that even in our ‘bicycle monarchy’, things sometimes go wrong.
