This busy street intersection with no traffic lights is just pure chaos

Anarchy. That's what it's like to drive on the streets of Ethiopia. There are no traffic lights, no painted lanes, no rules on who has the right of way, no fear of hitting the car in front of you, and basically no driver has any idea what the other driver is going to do until they do it. It's chaos and probably inefficient—but, hey, it seems to work.

This CCTV footage was taken at an intersection near Meskal Square in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia.
