Transportation in Less Developed Countries

This intersection is crazy. And think of the poor pedestrians. I have no idea why here were no accidents or deaths there. Just scroll down and click on the link at the bottom. (Not a joke.)


Most Amazing Intersection!

My conclusion after a couple of views, their vehicles have great brakes and the pedestrians are wearing Nike running shoes and Depends.

This is what a major intersection with no traffic lights looks like. How they are able to avoid accidents is quite remarkable.

In this time lapse video we see the intersection at Meskel Square, the nerve center of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

While the square is a primary site for the city's large festivals and celebrations, it is also a chaotic crossroad for thousands and thousands of vehicles daily.

This is organized confusion at its finest. Pedestrians, walk with care!
