#6: A Helping Hand at the Crosswalk, Sweden
Sweden has some nifty pedestrian tools installed throughout their cities. This gadget is simple yet effective. Bike riders can lean on this stand while waiting at a crosswalk. There’s even a convenient foothold if you want to take your foot off the pedal. Whoever thought of this device is a genius.
Some people might not want to use this because of a fear of germs. That’s totally valid, and we hope they get cleaned every once in a while. However, bike riders who aren’t too concerned with germs love these things. The design is intuitive, and the installation doesn’t block other pedestrians. It’s a pretty good idea for cities that have a lot of bike riders.
