That is hilarious!

And yet no cars ran into each other. I was intrigued by the people happily wandering through the middle of it all. :lol:

You'd expect casualties, but maybe they are very defensive drivers...and pedestrians.

I wonder how much the video was sped up? The original might have been much slower, but still 'interesting'! :lol:

I judged the speed up by the rate at which the pedestrians crossed the road.

Even at a slow speed they seem out of control.
I wouldn't drive there.
