crossing a cross road has never been so advantageous

on April 11, 2013

I don’t know if any study has been done to assess the advantages of crossing the crossroads in Ahmedabad.

I pass through a cross road daily on my route to work. What is remarkable (pls see the diagram), at any point, a person faces vehicles from 3-4 directions and as you navigate to your destination, the directions of vehicles constantly change.

And how is it assured that accidents don’t occur?? by mutual understanding and that too only through eye contact. There is only a split second eye contact and it decides who will cross first. A small contribution may also be attributed to “survival of the fittest” / “law of the jungle”??

My assessment says – two advantages, firstly, one becomes more alert and secondly, increase in mutual understanding with a stranger…
