AUG 5TH: Problem and solution

In the Amsterdam children fighting cars in de Pijp, 1972 video we come to learn of a pressing problem the community is dealing alongside the solutions they came up with. A Theme directly tied to the other video I watched, Explaining the Dutch roundabout abroad, was progress and growth. As I watched the first video I heard the suggestions those children hoped to implant within their own community. As the elderly were run over and the children’s creative room was limited by the expansion of these motor vehicles, we get to witness the first few solutions those children hoped to implant. As they started with closing down one road to later learning how to divert traffic in an effective manner, years later those same children adopted and applied the current round about system. Overall, both videos, years apart, are off the same effort by the same people, showing the effectiveness of their efforts finally.
