5 of the world's craziest road junctions

Are you one of these people who gets a little nervous at the prospect of driving a car when you travel overseas?  If so, then look away now. We’ve scoured YouTube to bring you footage from some of the worst junctions around the world. If you know of any that are worse, then please let us know in the comments and we’ll follow up with another similar round-up.

Saint Petersburg, Russia

This footage shows a compilation of accidents at Pr. Slavy in Saint Petersburg over a very short time period (note the date and time on on the top left of the footage).

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Who needs traffic lights when the police are on hand, happy to take their lives into their own hands?


Sorry, we don’t know the precise location of this one but, despite this, we still feel it’s a worthy contender for our list.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Welcome to rush hour at the Nguyen Cahn Cha intersection.

Moscow, Russia

Here the traffic is at such a gridlock that even an ambulance finds itself getting boxed in.

So maybe you need to assess what the roads are like before you take the plunge with hiring a car for your next trip. Then again, being a pedestrian isn’t always easy either, as these last two videos will testify!

Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo, Japan

Hyderabad, India

We think there’s a strong argument for an underpass in both of these cases!

    These clips are crazy, most of them are not following the rules.
    They should understand the rules are for their safety.
