Intersection With Traffic Lights Off Elicits Astonishing Behavior Of Cars As Video Viewers Report Anxiety

"Looks like a video game or something," writes a viewer of the video.

Traffic lights are off at a busy intersection. Drivers generally understand that this situation calls for an inconvenient, but relatively safe, four-way stop. But not at the this intersection. These drivers all behave in pretty much the same nonchalant way, tempting fate and seemingly content to simply avoid disaster. A security camera catches video of the white-knuckle spectacle.
