• Refuges are safe places, halfway a road, where you can wait until it is safe to continue crossing.
  • Since refuges often separate the two directions of traffic on busy streets, they provide the advantage that you do not have to pay attention to these two directions at the same time.
  • There are refuges for both pedestrians and cyclists.
  • You are not allowed to cycle over a refuge for pedestrians. As they are not expecting to find you there, you could surprise or even scare them.
  • You are allowed to walk over a refuge while pushing your bicycle (for example when accompanying a pedestrian or when having to walk due to a flat tire).
