Chinese Traffic

If you think the traffic in your area is bad, try travelling around Xiamen in South China. Due to a massive increase in the sale of cars, it is becoming almost impossible to drive around the city. Link - via Nothing To Do With Arbroath

ooh, pretty! i can almost see it swirling on the screen.

in reality it's probably a soul-sucking, lane-hogging, stop-and-go (around again, damn!) nightmare.

but from afar, lovely.

Lasse, it's because everyone is thinking "if I leave room for the people on the roundabout to get off at the exit after my entry point, then people on the roundabout not exiting there will take my 'place' on the roundabout and there will be no room for me so I should enter now, even if I will block the exit."

I've seen it happen at more than just roundabouts - but on roundabouts it's doubly stupid to think that way. When you're driving a bus, as are many of the drivers blocking the upper two exits, it may even be triple.
