    Organised Chaos!

    You have to watch this several times. Pay special attention to the pedestrians on the right hand side moving from 1 to 5 'clock positions and then the ones near the top moving from 2 to 10 o'clock positions.

    In the Western world (or here in SA for that matter) we would have 120 dead pedestrians and 500 car accidents in this mayhem !

    No overdone security
    No safety first doctrine
    No rules ... and the result is: Efficiency !!

    Major Intersection, No Traffic Lights

    This is what a major intersection with no traffic lights looks like.

    In this time lapse video we see the intersection at Meskel Square, the nerve centre 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 !

    LOOK AT THE PEDESTRIANS AT THE LOWER RIGHT OF THE PICTURE !

    And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

    Amazingly enough the system, or lack thereof, works pretty well.

    Other times, other places, traffic efficiency can suffer breakdowns. I wonder if these folks could get chinese take-out delivered?
