Meskel Square Intersection

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!!
