I’ve visited New York a number of times in my life, and each time I am amazed when I leave without witnessing someone’s horrible death just by crossing the street. Pedestrians, cyclists, motorists, cops, you name it, none of them pay any attention to the traffic signals. It’s almost admirable the way they defiantly and angrily coexist. Here’s a video of the action taking place at just one of the intersections in Manhattan. You tell me how no one dies.
