Trust and leaving your bike unlocked

A few days ago I was in southern Sweden in a small coastal town called åhus in Skåne and I came across this unlocked bicycle. Apparently, the guy who owned it was working in the boat at the dock just beside it, but I think it is still quite cozy to be in a town where you can leave your bike unlocked.

People tend to be looser with locking when they are watching, but in cities like Amsterdam or Copenhagen people still often lock up even if they are having a coffee just next to their bike.
