Traffic Behaving Badly

by

All the trafic analyses in the world may not be as convincing as this viral video that things have gotten a bit out of hand.

Artist Ron Gabriel posted a camera at a typical Manhattan intersection for a School of Visual Arts project. And even though New York City traffic is nothing less than mayhem, it could easily reflect reckless behavior in any metropolitan area.

Illegal U-turns? Check.
Driving through yellow lights? Check.
Jaywalking? Check.
Reckless cycling? Check.
Riding on the sidewalk? Check.

According to the artist, the study shows the "interconnected role in improving the safety and usability of our streets."
