But (in NL at least) not all such junctions are with a living street. 

The essence is that entering or leaving a side road over one of these
constructions counts as a "special manoeuvre", just like reversing and
turning in the street. You have to give way to just about everything. 

When you compare a junction with this "exit construction" (Dutch:
uitritconstructie) with a similar junction without it from a drivers
perspective, the "main road" is automatically a "priority road" at that
junction, without the need for a yellow diamond. Otherwise the through
road would have to yield priority to traffic from the right. Pedestrians
crossing the side road following the main road have priority in both
