  • Spotted on a sign in Banff.

    "Wait, what’s a Woonerff?
    It’s a Dutch word used to describe a shared street. On this stretch of road in Banff, pedestrians, cars and cyclists all share the road. Cars drive at a very slow speed, pedestrians have the right-of-way and cyclists travel through at a leisurely pace."
