I had a marketing professor who was from India. He once made the statement that many Indians don't bother buying new cars because they get so many dings on them after only a few days off of the lot. This seems to illustrate why!

If you watch, there's one pedestrian in the lower right corner who ends up with two vehicles simultaneously going around him, directly in front and directly behind, about a foot away. Once they pass, he just continues on his merry way.

This is the system I envision, but sensors in the road would actually take control of your vehicle while in the intersection to avoid collisions. I hate traffic lights. They are so inefficient.

That is craaaazy. Can you imagine this happening in America with all our SUVs? It would be a demotlition derby everywhere. I'd just drive a snow plow.

Somebody posted this once. What cracks me up so much, is the white car at the top of the screen driving against traffic toward the end of the clip.
