Exactly. If they introduced lanes or lights, it wouldn't work any more.

So I can go watch it.

Eta: wat? How do they not have continuous crashes?!

How is there not a wreck every 10 seconds there?

they sped up the tape, so they are actually going much slower than the vid

Evan at normal speed, if that were here, that intersection would look like a Pick-N-Pull inside of 3 minutes.

with lights that intersection would be backed up for a mile in every direction.
there are a bunch of european towns which are removing all traffic signs and even lane markings and the results are consistently safer roads more aware drivers and less congestion

Looks a lot like any number of intersections along Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando.

Because driving without traffic control signals or lane markers is so easy a third worlder can do it safely, regardless of what the hand-wringers say.

If it were here in the US there would be a clusterfuck of traffic lights that you get to wait at for 5 minutes then it is green for your lane for 10 seconds.

Blue and white seem to be popular colors there.

Ethiopia huh?

You planning on visiting some african whores?

Link Posted: 4/25/2014 4:13:38 PM EDT
First time I watched it... I focused on the vehicles (looks like a lot of public transportation and/or taxi services).

Second time I watched it... I focused on the pedestrians... fuck that!

I didn't see very much bicycle or motorcycle traffic.

Africa has it right guys! Every single country on that continent has almost 2x the auto fatalities compared to America (per 100k)

Lets go to that system!

India does it, too.

Some of those big buses look like they just cruse through there with out even tapping the breaks.

Size maters...
Link Posted: 4/25/2014 4:38:38 PM EDT
The most crazy part is the pedestrians crossing the road in the middle of all that chaos!!

This one in the UK works, though it is a low-flow intersection:

Truth! I hated the OBT when I was in Orlando. Just as bad as Kirkman Rd. in Orlando and the "Kirkman Crunch", which I was a victim.

A society where everyone carries a machine gun is a polite society?
