Driving in Ethiopia

You have to watch this several times. Pay special attention to the pedestrians
on the right hand side moving from 1 to 5 o'clock positions and then the ones near
the top moving from 2 to 10 o'clock positions .
​ ​
THIS COULD BE THE MOST AMAZING THING YOU WILL EVER SEE!
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.
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!
LOOK AT THE PEDESTRIANS AT THE LOWER
RIGHT OF THE PICTURE!

Re: Driving in Ethiopia

Is it worse than going round the Paris ring road in rush hour ?

I was once driving around the 5 (?) lane Etoile circle in a Citroen 2cv during rush hour when the hand brake lever disconnected from the dash.

I learnt many new & interesting French phrases.
