    Ha, this video sure brings back memories of my study abroad in Russia. Drivers most certainly do not stop for ANYONE on crosswalks!




    The funny thing is that the ad at the end that reads -Дерзай!- means "Dare!".

    Atlanta is cursed with notoriously bad and unskilled drivers, but I felt like a moving target crossing streets in Australia. Drivers seemed to have little respect for pedestrians. It did make me feel at home.

    YAY frogger!!! There's some of that in the USA and def in NYC
    I think our ped laws are a little to strict. Yeah, it's for our safety but some of these lights and crosswalks are pretty ridiculous. But I guess these laws exist cuz people here are sue crazy icon_razz.gif

    And traffic circles are scary to drive in, but do look kinda cool from the air lol
