You don't need Traffic lights.

Re: You don't need Traffic lights.

Nice. I note there are only a few pedestrians.

The general pattern of movement resembles my thought patterns while reading CF

Re: You don't need Traffic lights.

They do the same in Taiwan, they have traffic lights but they tend go on red, stop on green. Important rule to know...
But speeds are low, notice the vehicles come to a complete stop within 10m for the peds.
