Scary Funny Videos

3 Way Street Artist video tracks scary traffic Funny!!

3 Way Street Artist video tracks scary traffic Funny!! Warning: The video below may cause you never to want to leave your house again. A School of Visual Arts thesis project by artist Ron Gabriel, named “3-Way Street,” tracks a camera at the Manhattan intersection of 28th Street and Park Avenue. The New York mayhem known as street traffic ensues. The video of traffic behaving badly has gone viral on the Web. No surprise: What you see is pretty hair-raising. As the artist puts it on his website, the point of the study is to show the “interconnected role in improving the safety and usability of our streets.” Mission very much accomplished. With the master student’s helpful graphics added to the clips, it’s almost like watching the video game Frogger: Pedestrians dodge bikes, run into oncoming traffic, and barely escape with their lives. An 18-wheeler makes a tight U-turn. Cars jump lights. Pedestrians jaywalk. Bikes do everything but follow the rules of the road. Riding on the sidewalk? Check. Riding on the wrong side of the road? Check. Nearly colliding with people on foot? Check. Check. Check. Aside from the arresting visuals, the stats from the artist are scary: This is just one intersection of 12370 in the city. And 74 percent of the city’s accidents that kill or seriously injure three to four people a day usually happen at an intersection, which causes collisions of bikes, cars, and people. You can watch the video below. And please be careful out there.

    honestly, the traffic in new york looks very decent to be honest, this is what you call a good day in kuala lumpur, or jakarta (in the 60s). but im amazed at how irresponsible people are on the road, even on a good one
