Watch for the crashes
What? No crash? No accidents at all with all those rules being broken left, right and centre? With all those pedestrians, drivers, cyclists and trams using that same space? Nothing at all, almost like people are managing to just get along by themselves? Not entirely unlike those places in Holland – also being tried in London, I believe – where they’ve done away with some or all of the rules governing priority for who’s riding what coming from where and leaving it for people to sort out on their own. On the other hand you probably couldn’t make that work with all junctions and I’m not sure Flinders and Swanston would be one anyway. Still, it doesn’t change the fact that all that rule breaking didn’t actually hurt anyone. Food for thought.
PS – maybe it’s the camera angle and the music but I have an urge to spend the rest of the weekend playing SimCity.
