That was hilarious!

You would think that they would install a stop sign or give way sign at a couple of those intersections. Again and again the same stuff - riding/driving wearing blinkers! Just looking right in front and not to the sides or further ahead.

The third accident has some merit. At least the bicyclist stopped so the motorcycle wouldn't have any problem with aim. How nice of him.

Riding with an umbrella. I have never seen that before. I've seen a cigarette in one hand and a cell phone in the other, but never an umbrella.

Where was that driver looking? Perhaps where they were going? Hang on, that is where the pedestrian is standing...

WTF indeed!

Very similar the situation here in Tawan. Stop signs are usually painted on the road, not marked with a sign on a pole. But the vast majority of people interpret them to mean "Don't stop unless you physically can't move forward". "Everyone is expected to watch out for me" is also a common subconcious practice. People drive where they want, the way they want, and a handful of others drive semi-defensively to prevent everything from piling up. Sad, but a daily fact of life. I've been fortunate not to have been in an accident, but it's because my senses go on "high" when I get out on the road.
