You think traffic is bad where you live?

You think traffic is bad where you live?

There are two things strike me about this video.

1. It’s a bit busy, and lacks a bit of order.

2. No one is hitting each other.

That intrigues me. Is there something that can be gleaned from the way drivers understand this organized chaos? Maybe a compelte lack of rules is better than a few loose ones? I mean, I’m sure that accidents happen here, but I’m surprised that they’re not happening all the time.  It looks so crazy and also so calm. Perhaps if you know that anything can happen, you might approach the situation with more caution and with a hyper-awareness not found in drivers where we live who are on auto-pilot half the time.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?
