beware: canals could prove dangerous

Our city is not more dangerous than any other, but there is one difference: each year appr. 15 people drown in a Amsterdam canal. Cause no.1 is alcohol, but sometimes people just fall in and drown because of the low temperature of the water. Most victims are tourists and younger men doing a pee at night. So if you would stroll alongside the beautiful canals…. not too close. Or sober.
