Walking the thin line
I've been watching a lot of videos by Americans in Scandinavian countries, and something they often bring up is that Scandinavians rarely jaywalk.The Americans then jaywalk less too because they're afraid Scandinavians know something they don't.
The reason is simple though; pedestrians and drivers have an unofficial agreement to follow the rules.
"I don't jaywalk and in return please respect the traffic lights"
And it really is smartest to follow the traffic laws in Scandinavia because the drivers aren't used to people crossing the street at random and therefore aren't prepared for it. However, they're usually pretty good at letting pedestrians cross even if there aren't any traffic lights nearby.
And also the bikes. Tourists are never prepared for the bikes.

Iceland's demons were high on lava-bananas and started pissing off Faroe Island's wasps (gifts from Denmark), which resulted in Iceland running away from Faroe because he was commanding the things like the Wicked Witch of the West and her flying monkeys. In desperation Iceland swiped Finland's bike, only for Finland to chase him and hop on the back to retrieve it from the thief. After being whacked on the head with the gun a bit Iceland (with some pleading) convinced Finland to fire backward at Faroes, who was now being assisted by Aland simply because Finland was there and he doesn't really NEED a reason to attack Finland but usually takes what he can get.
America: Takes out phone to record.
