Post pictures of absolutely grim transportation infrastructure
>>1711416BART isn't THAT good.
>>1711420>when you first unlock rail in cities skylines
>>1711505What's the problem? I even see a rail trail>>1711559>Share the road cagies, it's the law!>Noooo you can't just expect me to share the road with cagies
>>1711408that looks like California…no excuse for that bike to be off the sidewalk anyway, that’s their personal lane.
>>1711574I will say, on high speed highways you should not expect bicycles, and people who put bike lanes on those are complete retards. In town, sharing streets works fine. But with higher speeds you should definitely have fully separated traffic.
>>1711574>putting a bike lane down the middle of a cloverleaf intersection between an express way and a high speed arterial roadOh yeah, there's absolutely no way this could possibly go wrong with cagers mowing down cyclists while changing lanes.
>>1711408I don't mind sharrows actually, they're better than being forced into incredibly unsafe lanes in the gutter
>>1711559that is a trap. they are straight up trying to limit the cyclist population
>>1711714They do that themselves, you can check anywhere on /n/.>dude helmets are for weenies>dude signs and signals are for cars, not for cyclists>[collision/death rates go up]>oy vey, this is a shoah, persecute the cagers now
>>1711574>>Share the road cagies, it's the law!>>Noooo you can't just expect me to share the road with cagiesNot even they pretend it's really about "sharing". "Sharing" is just a stepping stone on the way to their vision of total car abolition.
>>1711814>"Sharing" is just a stepping stone on the way to their vision of total car abolition.This but unironically.
>>1711719>>1711720wtf i love europe now
All of America
>>1712196Looks like bikes can only go left or straight (right seems to lead to an expressway) so putting the bike lane there is the most logical place for it
I just want to live in the Netherlands
>>1712226>wanting to live in the nation state manifestation of "you will own nothing and love it" because it has ebin bike infrastructure
>>1711811thisbunch of faggot losers seriouslythey refuse to even believe that michelin makes good inner tubes>>1711559that's fine, you have plenty of visibility to see if cars are coming from the side
>>1712240ok boomer, drop dead already
>>1712226how dark are you? could you pass for a black? could be very easy or very difficult if you look white or have an education
>>1711505woooooooow that's fucking hilarious
>>1712240>healthy distribution of wealth>somehow a bad thing
>>1712340>a healthy distribution is when like 100 guys own everything and everyone else owns nothing and you put even Russia to shame
>>1711413>one car stops>refuses to elaborate>gets out the car and leavesHe would get charged with economic terrorism lol
>>1712561>He would get charged with economic terrorism lolhe would probably be charged with the normal type too
>>1712561>>one car stops>>refuses to elaborate
>>1712561A DOT truck or wrecker would have that removed in 15 minutes or less
>>1712574In rush hour?
>>1712582Yes It's common for relevant agencies to stage police, DOT, and wrecker vehicles in strategic locations before afternoon rush hour begins to handle incidents faster.

>>1712574Ive seen a sheriff's deputy get a car that was blocking a bridge out of the way by pushing on its bumper with the cattleguard in front of his truck while the cars driver sat inside and steered. Was pretty funny, scuffed up the bumper real bad
>>1711420the problem here is no bicycle highway, the presence of trains is overall a good thing
>>1712778Literally no different than a massive elevated highway for people on the ground
Let’s see some grim transit infrastructure. Denver’s LRT lines along highways and empty industrial areas come to mind.
>>1715371MBTA has some post-Soviet-tier 40 year old stock.
>>1715391We've got older then that, the pccs are literally ancient at this point
>>1711505> if only someone could come up with an idea for something of a multi-story building where you can park your car
>>1711420Are those flood plains or swamp lands that they're all on posts? Why couldn't they just elevate them on sand and build passages?
>>1711719Ahh we have one like that in Riga. Best things it's on decline around corner, so you pick up speed, and BAM BUSHES. Even better in summer when foliage blocks view. But what's most puzzling that it terminates against a plot of land. No idea how they plan on extending it.
>>1711415it looks like there is a bike traffic light that would give cyclists a window to do this. The bigger danger is probably the 'no turn on red' sign that beaners might not respect, although I've seen these LED signs popping up recently. Some green thermoplastic markings might help too.
>>1715710This is what happens when there's a top down directive to build X miles of MUPs and absolutely no oversight into where they go
>>1711413Why is one fully white and one fully red?Is it because the white ones are going towards the camers (therefore showing the front lights) and the red ones are going in the opposite direction (showing the back lights)?If so, shouldn't there be some red in the left and white in the right, from the adjacent car being lit by the one in the front/back?How do we only see one color super brightly and the other not at all?Is it because the one pointing towards the camera is so strong that it makes the reflection of the other one too dim to see by comparison?Is it becasue the cars aren't close enough together for the reflection to be visible from that distance?Is it all these factors together?
>>1712240nigger, if that image is meant to imply usa is better than sweden and netherlands it would also mean brazil and ukraine were better than usa
>>1711811american spotted. helmets being 'protection' is just a motor industry fabrication. the vast majority of cyclist deaths would not be prevented with a helmet.also, who actually says that signs and signals are only for cars? get a fucking grip mate
>>1711811>muh helmetI prefer to keep my head unencumbered so I can look around and know where all the cagers are.
>>1715391Soviet trains aren't nearly that bad lol. They're actually important infrastructure.
>>1711413Thats quite pretty I have to admit.
>>1711418I think this call for some reasonable tresspassing.
>>1715707bruh you can literally see swamps and shallow lakes on the background.
>>1716402>heller everyone, today is gonna be epic, BECAUSE
>>1715690There is one
>>1715882It's implying that all the nations there are hellholes of Brazil tier inequality.
>>1711505>“parkersburg”>literally a burg full of parkingExtreme kek
>>1711522Pretty crowded, but from my visits there I'd say the public transit in Berlin is far from "dire"
Legit question: why are cagers such pussies?Some twat thought he could horn beep me to get off the road so i flipped him off in front of his missus. I wanted to fight the fucker but he just drove off like a bitch.
Does this count?
>>1715880Shhh, don't let facts get in the way, only meme pictures and videos are allowed on /n/ anymore
>>1711719I love how the road owner didn't event thought of making a hole in the guard rail to allow pedal cycles to re-join the carriageway.They can even fine you if you operate a pedal cycle on the sidewalk
>>1716931Ok so what is it then?
>>1716840I'm fine with that if they also ban all on street parking and use the space for bike lanes and sidewalks
>>1716932get off and walk retard
>>1712340>implying serfs get any ealthlmao
>>1716989 Not gonna even touch the brakes.
Spaghetti junction in Brisbane. There’s also tunnels underneath. All of this makes my gps have a panic attack
>>1716414Stairser of doom.
>>1716989Pic is in Italy.For the Italian Highway Code if you dismount a pedal cycle, a moped or motorcycle and you push it on foot it's still considered as operating the vehicle and you MUST NOT operate vehicles or drive animals on the sidewalk.Also the maximum width for a pedal cycle is 130cm, the sidewalk is not wide enough.The engineers who design this shit should have known better
>>1716402Imagine cycling down the ramp
>>1717270the cracks down the middle look like someone did
>>1716931>uh here's the pic from the side, the design of this town isn't bad because uh, there's trees!lmao, amazing logic, still a car dependant shithole, which should not be the case for such a small town, it's the small towns that should be walkable.
>>1715798can confirm that no right turn on red signals are about 80% effective, nearly been hit multiple times by retards, even when just walking across
>>1711814maybe if less retarded drivers killed bikers they wouldn't want cars gone.
>>1711574>>1711814The ultimate redpill is that Cyclists DON'T want to share the road with cars. It's a necessity born out of shitty infrastructure that forces cars and bikes to coexist on the same plot of pavement. Cyclists and Drivers are both happier when the other isn't sharing pavement with them.The difference is Cyclists want bike-only infrastructure and cagies don't.As long as cagies keep blocking cycling infrastructure, they have to share the road.
>>1717364>The difference is Cyclists want bike-only infrastructure and cagies don't.Speak for yourself, not everyone who rides a bike is a delusional batavophile
>>1716931the only thing this image shows is that those stores are literally isolated from any sort of livable space. Literally where do the people who work and shop there live? What's the point of this place?
>>1717368>delusional batavophilelol>>1717374They live in the surrounding area
>>1716931This is Breezewood, PAIt's literally designed to be a stop for highway traffic
>>1717055I love Brisbane and it looks like they're starting to head in the right direction (green bridges, centenary bikeway is incredible) but the highway infrastructure here is the ugliest shit in the world. The Inner City Bypass is a blight on the best part of the city. T.bike commuting to the city.
>>1711418When you accidently throw your ball over the fence.
>>1716402Not too bad to negotiate with a light bike, but a nightmare with panniers. Cargo bike? Forget it.
>>1712240>Believing that wealth redistribution means lower wealthWhy are you even on /n/?
>>1722194for those of us who aren't failures, wealth redistribution would mean we had less wealth.
Had to venture into the suburbs today for some CL bike parts, and drove through this thing. I've never seen an intersection quite like it--why build it this way?>>1711505I used to live in Belpre, and would ride through there everyday, on my way to work. Yeah, it's pretty bleak.
>>1711413Is that the LAX PAPI?
>>1722284>all this to avoid the roundabout
>>1717506The PA turnpike authority are complete faggots for not allowing direct access for crossing interstate highways.
>>1722284Because American road planners are retards stuck in the '60s.
>>1722284It technically improves safety and reduces 90-degree collisions.t. traffic engineering professional
>>1715883Bro I got into an accident twice on my bicycle. Both times I slammed my head on the asphalt. Didn't feel a thing because of my helmet.
>>1722284That's a "Superstreet" style intersection. It avoids collision points and improves traffic flow on the main roads but it sucks for the cross street.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superstreet
>>1711522this is like one of those photos of beaches in southern england from last year during summer. The types that popped up all over sensationalist covid tweets. It's a bullshit false perspective designed to make people REEEE about crowds and social distancing.
>>1711505is this real
>>1722284i live close to a roundabout (luckily they're going to reroute the whole thing and add sound barriers), it gets bottlenecked during rush hour and during the summer it gets ridiculous with the noise of the accelerations of the joyriders with their harley davidsons and trombone cars. that looks like it would maintain a more consistent flow of traffic and not bottleneck like a roundabout.
>>1722380also there has been a bunch of collisions in the roundabout
>>1722381>>1722380>bunch of collisions in the roundaboutWhat third world country do you live in?
>>1722358That aerial shot is a couple years old, though it's much the same... one of the small parking lots turned into a Sheetz.But there's more parking lots, and another garage just outside the frame. My pic is near:goo gl/maps/E6EPkSqxcRAsSrFs9
>>1722382swedenit doesn't happen all the time and barely gets mentioned in the local news but since i live so close i tend to notice it more
>>1711559>someone was paid to come up with thislmao
Pic is from a ride last week. These are not highways, numbered routes, etc. I was headed East and that merge, with the three white cars, is... suspenseful.>>1722341>"Superstreet"Cool to know the name & the reasoning. There must not be many of these, because that specific intersection is mentioned in the wiki article.
>>1711559I slow down until someone sees me and slows down enough that they're obviously letting me go then I make sure I take like 10 minutes to cross the turn off so that the cars never ever let a cyclist out again
>>1715882Think it is implying Gini is not a good measurement on its own.
>>1722426I’ve never seen a problem so easy to solve with some yellow paint. Jesus, whoever designed that but of road must be an actual retard. The problem spot is the north-bound off ramp next to the southbound road.
>>1711505>ParkersburgTop kekTo be fair it looks like they’re building a parking garage in the middle there. Although there’s a good chance it’s to increase capacity rather than to replace any of the lots.
>>1722713r u even trying
>>1712564Holy shit his car fucking “crashed”? How often has this happen to Teslas? Imagine driving a car that can’t even start without software allowing it, fuck.
>>1715707For one, you can literally see the marshes in the picture. For two, those crazy Chinese really love putting railroads on those concrete viaducts and will take any opportunity to do it. To be fair, it does look breddy gud.
>>1715880>Is it because the one pointing towards the camera is so strong that it makes the reflection of the other one too dim to see by comparison?Yes>Is it becasue the cars aren't close enough together for the reflection to be visible from that distance?Also yes but mostly the first one
>>1715883>helmets being 'protection' is just a motor industry fabricationDo cyclists really?
G-guys, don't forget about Florida!
>>1717374The point of the place is it’s a truck stop. No one lives there. It exists to consume while delivering consumables.>>1717385You can see in the image that there’s no “surrounding area”. People live in nearby towns. No one lives there.
>>1722738just /n/ autistic freaks who are insecure about how they look and can't cope with new things or how the helmet/straps feel against their skin
>>1722284I could see this as forcing highway traffic to slow down before entering town, along with what other anons said about reducing 90 degree collisions. Also prevents backflip on the highway from traffic entering town that a regular traffic light would create.
Bank now is closed to traffic, but it used to be such a clusterfuck junction that many cyclist and pedestrian died trying to cross it.
>>1722824What's the highest number of intersection approaches you've seen? Anything higher than 6 is pretty rare in the US, but I know there are several 7-way intersections in London (Seven Dials, etc).
>>1722284>>1722398>>1722426>>1722694>>1722713>>1722733>>1722765>>1722824Amateurs>>1722857>>1722859>>1722892Now we are talking
Budapest has some of these abominations. This in particular is always clogged up. There are the station of three major tram lines and the M2 metro line.
>>1722946this was just an experiment if I remember correctly.>>1722892LMAO what the fuck
They redesigned the plaza in fron of Keleti railway station and this what it became. It's better than what it looks but it still qualifies. This was finished in 2014.
>>1716409>I think this call for some reasonable tresspassing.NOT IN MY AMERICA*cauks gun**dials police*
>>1722284looks like they have a high traffic road going through there with two side streets that service a small housing development and a church or somethign across the street. probably very few people crossing from one side to the other so its not worth making huge floods of 60mph cars slam on the brakes so one car can cross every once in a while. i wish there were more intersections like this.always drives me ballistic when a flood of a bunch of gas guzzlers at top speed have to slam on the breaks and stop for one or two cars, the slam on the gas again to re-accelerate back up to speed. uggggh, the wasted resources and emissionsthere is a high crime area by me where the lights are triggered to turn red as the cars approach them. wow. most annoying thing in the world driving through there at 4am becuae you will litereally hit every red light
In Maryland they're converting the shoulder of highways into "bike lanes".
>>1722947It was built in 1972 and it's still there now, so that's some experiment.
>>1723259That's how it is back home. A literal shoulder, speed limit 65mph. Every exit is a chance for your life to end.I can only figure that these serve some legal requirement, to access funding.
>>1723286If you let bikes ride on the shoulder, then your project is multi-modal. Some project will build a 5ft MUP on the side of the highway and claim it's increasing livability and quality of life while adding 2 lanes in each direction. But the project is multimodal so how can you argue against it. :^)t. transportation planning pro
>>1722734>whoopsie looks like your car "accidentally" crashed you have to wait for the tesla service team to repairthe right to repair isn't fucking there anymore.we already see this with large car manufacturers or tractors the vehicle stops working and you have to wait for a specialized service team to fix which takes some time for them to arrive which farmers have not oh have i mentioned those repairs are fucking expensive
>>1715690Anon, they have enough parking as it is, they don't need more. All that land is parking lots because they demolished the buildings back in the 60s and parking lots are more functional than empty lots.
>>1723286what mad man would ride here?
>>1716402Are cyclists really supposed to ride down the grooved edges?!
>>1711409Holy shit I was just there and drove through that interchange a million times. That is Lehi, Utah I believe. Pic related looks similar but I could've sworn this was it.
>>1723348No, you dismount and walk your bike up or down.
>>1723352>Veterans Memorial HighwayDo Americans really?
>>1723341I've done it out of desperation when there was no other way. You just gotta put on your headphones, hug the outer edge of the road, and try not to shit.
>>1723415Is it hard to pedal with balls that massive?
>>1717364Given the prevalent "fuck you, your rules, and your signals, I will ride where I want, when I want" attitude seen on this board, bike-only infrastructure won't do shit. Even if you're not a massive hypocrite you never call out those that act that way.
>>1711409>>1723352I almost moved out there for a job (Micron), but man, the smog can get so bad. It's unfortunate.I'm used to the Appalachian mountains, I don't think there's anything like that over there.
>>1711409isn't this like one of those cross diamond intersections where you drive on the opposite side between the two merging points and no one turning left gets stuck?it looks horrible but works surprisingly well
>>1723286>>1723289>>1723424I don't know how it is elsewhere, but in rural Colorado there are stretches of interstate that are signed for bikes too - the reason for that is to signal that those are exceptional areas where bikes are allowed because there's literally no other alternative route to places served by that highway. >>1723424Not that guy, but if you can ride in stormy crosswinds then you can ride next to an interstate, it's not that big of a deal. It's unpleasantly noisy, but most interstates have HUGE shoulders so it's not particularly unsafe. The potential conflict point is entry/exit ramps, but since you'd only ride on a highway in a very rural area anyways there's not likely to be much traffic, and if you're uncomfortable you can just ride off and back on via the ramps instead of crossing through them anyways.Admittedly I say this as someone who grew up and learned to ride bikes in a city where 6-lane arterial roads bigger than many interstates are common, so I have a very high tolerance for stressful riding situations...
>>1723611Car guys will blame the smog on everything besides cars.
>>1723621Hey, I've rode through one of those. Industrial area, but therer were bike lanes the entire length, both directions.You can just see the green bike boxes in this pic.
>>1723647Los Angeles smog is caused by the topography of the area and the direction of air flow (as well as air elsewhere in the area, like forest fires)...I imagine it's similar in other places. I've never seen outright denial that cars have anything to do with it, but I guess when you spend so much time around people bitching about cars and how they're everything wrong with the world, anything less than that is heresy.
>>1723811>he actually did itlol
>>1723811LA is one of the most cager places in the world though
>>1723811Topography doesn't cause air pollution.
>>1723917It definitely worsens it though. Thermal inversions are real.
>>1723847Thanks for proving MY point.
>>1722736The viaduct spam might be because they’re afraid of flooding
Earlier today I looked up US Rep Jim Jordan's hometown... and it has a roundabout with integrated parking.I fucking hope this never catches on.
>>1724436It looks a little impractical, especially if parking isn't plentiful. The "parking in the roundabout" has been in that city since at least the mid-1990s, the main improvement being actual concrete in the roundabout and between the lanes instead of just yellow striping. Otherwise I really don't see anything inherently wrong with it.
>>1724436roundabouts waste enough space in the first place that I dont see a problem with this approach
>>1722765The pedestrian signal is probably timed for like a full minute or something, though. Those ultra-narrow bike lanes that go nowhere (and are at risk for cars turning from the north-south) need to be eliminated and replaced with a MUP though.
>>1724470didn't even notice there were bike lines there
>>1724436desu if you're going slow that's not so bad but I doubt you'd really wanna park and walk around the average US highstreet
>>1724436Every day we stray further from God's light.
>>1711415I ride that street everyday. I never take that gay turn. Most people ignore it and just ride on the and do wheelies
>>1712692That was probably me. My cars battery shorted in the middle of rush hour traffic on one of LA's most busy freeways. I was just chilling in my whip so I told 911 to send someone to push me off the freeway. It took a good half hour for highway patrol to show up and push me off the freeway. The wagies were fucking seething lol.
>>1711505>>1723317tragedy of the 60s, it's still very hard for me to forgive anyone who thought razing blocks of perfectly fine stick housing and industrial buildings were a good ideaI live in Newark and it's hard seeing the scars of urban renewal everyday. At least lots of projects are starting to go up and density is finally increasing again.
>>1722382usa, our drivers will stop in the roundabout to let the people waiting at the yield signs in
>>1711522at least their all white
>>1723628Exits and entrances aside, highway shoulders tend to be littered with shredded truck tires and other stuff. However, the shoulder will disappear on old bridges (not found on Interstates, generally) and construction areas, so it's not always a surefire bet.
>>1724706Is that just there to make cyclists yield to cars periodically? If so, can I say based?
Imagine having to pull out of your own driveway into a fucking traffic light intersection.
>>1724940That would actually be awesome, wonder if the driveway gets its own detection loop
>>1724706Hungarian engineering knows no limits
>>1712340It's the exact opposite, higher GINI = worse inequality
>>1724957There's one in Houston at Mile Drive and Cypress-North Houston, with the driveway getting a stop line, two lights facing it, and even the green road signage that faces the driveway. It looks like it shares the light cycle with the road across the street but it must be neat to have traffic stop on both sides as you leave your house in the morning.
>>1725156What's the problem
>>1722287>>all this to avoid the roundaboutSometimes they're a pain in the ass
This place is shit to drive through, walk through and bike through.
>>1725360Cool, where is it
>>1712240What happened that caused the Netherlands to shoot up from 0.65 to 0.902 in 11 years
>>1725228Where is the efficiency? What’s up with spot 3 and it’s orientation? Why are they all ajar like that.
>>1716931I have eaten at that McDonalds and stayed at that hotel between the red awnings.
>>1725388If spot 3 was parallel to the spots left of it, it would be difficult to get into and out of with cars parked in the middle row, and it looks like they needed some additional clearance for that driveway on the right which angling those spots also provides.
>>1725392Neat little interchange
>>1725143Now that looks properly done.
>>1725143>>1725464You get your own left turn lane and even a left turn signal into your driveway
>>1723811>>1723917The San Pedro bay was called "bayo de los fumos" "smoky bay" in a 1542 voyage there.There are key places where pollution gets intensified, such as weather inversions in the Salt Lake valley and Anchorage, or bowls like Ciudad de Mexico.These places never stood a chance with cars.
>>1711418>>1716409Careful, Oprah's gonna get ya.She suppressed a lot of the evidence on the internet of all the pushback with her privatizing a road.Now there's just shit about how charitable she is for opening it for people during a Maui fire so they don't die.
>>1724940I already live on a thoroughfare where I need to wait for the lights to be just right so I can pull out of my driveway with all the traffic from commuting college students.
>>1722738Talking about helmets without addressing hostile infrastructure is like asking me if I separate all my recycling when there's a gigafactory spewing bullshit nearby.
>>1722694I remember thinking as a kid if a family of squirrels lived on a road island like this, if they could ever speciate to be entirely distinct and unable to breed with other squirrels even if they didn't morphologically change much.
>>1712240What's going on in the Netherlands? Higher GINI = higher inequality. What happened between 2018 and 2019? That seems like too huge a swing in a single non-depression or recession year to not be a change in methodology or data gathering.
>>1725622are we pretending the migration crisis never happened
>>1725378>>1725622Shitty measurement methodology.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tW_kw6OPXc0
>>1725613I thought that but with worms in my suburban neighborhood.
>>1725624The video does a very poor job of supporting his argument.
>>17257671) The data EE uses is poor, and the report he lifts it from (via. Wikipedia) acknowledges it is poor.2) EE's bit about house owners being in negative equity is just wrong.3) The number don't consider pensions are part of people's wealth, but the Netherlands has a pension requirement and people tend to have very large pensions compared to other countries.Basically EE was using data he didn't understand from a source he didn't read.
>>1722694hey, I live next to that thing. Its peak sovl. Its a pedestrian dominated area anyways, and super comfy.
>>1722789>You can see in the image that there’s no “surrounding area”. People live in nearby towns. No one lives there.Retard, look at it on satellite viewThere are houses all around there
>>1722946Lmao it looks like a Sonnenrad
>>1722426>>1722717I found it, it is in Hamilton Ohio. The reason there's not a stripe there is because of the side street located just up from the gore. Looks like the applicable state/local rules call for crossing streets to have a break in the center line, thus it has no center line. This is clearly as case, though, where exceptions from the rules need to be made... both striping and signage could be a lot better. In this view from August of this year you can see that even the "median begins stay right" sign is gone from the gore.
>>1724706Wasting EU funds: you're doing it well
>>1722857That one's interesting as there are no traffic lights. Just some stop signs, yields, and a few marked "dangerous intersection." I guess if you're unfamiliar with it, you can slowly make your way through it. Doesn't look so bad on street view.
>>1711559Unless that on-ramp is super busy, it's not as bad as it looks. You can go slow and look to the right.
>>1717055christ, the one time i went to brisbane was a nightmare. i wasn't even driving but the roads were such a mess
>>1726509You CAN go slow, but WILL you? Rule #1 of design is if you give users the chance to misbehave they will eventually critically misbehave.
>>1723645Berlin is trying bless 'em but they're just not getting it.
>>1727007I would imagine that was closed on purpose, looks like a roundabout exit
>>1711559the guy that came up with this shit should be charged for murder or something
>>1724940lol I live around there, there are plenty of intersections like that
>>1724436>>1724461You are but a little baby, watch this.3 way roundabout with integrated parking, bus stop, gas station and graveyard
>>1727566My commute bus passed through this roundabout. It's less awkward/dangerous than it looks.
>>1727566it works though

>>1728403Don't worry, NCDOT is going to do, uh something... about it. In 2030.
>>1728405>average altima driver>didn't mention fake dealer tags or not having insuranceYou're not even trying to be realistic
>>1722342hey this is my hometown lol
>>1728484How can you even tell?
>>1728484>12:52am, Friday November 5>Wimborne Rd, Poole, Dorset>Oi Geoff, bring the candy car 'round. Yeah yeah, 4channel.org, anovva unloicensed poster.
>>1711409>aashto has a snarky twitter accountwell ill be.
>>1715601At least the pccs are well maintained (and quarantined to the ASMR line) and not literally rusting apart like the OL cars.
>>1723414Yes we do.
>>1728405I think the only way this area could be made less of a warzone (short of tearing out half the exits, which would probably improve things overall but would piss off a ton of people) would be basically giving it the 485-77-115 treatment, where the people going from 485 inner to 115 don't interact with any 77 traffic except that which is also bound for 115Doesn't fix all the people trying to turn right after 3a (not realizing caldwell is a block away and doesn't have a grade crossing), but at least getting to 3a would be less of a death trap
>>1722857Eight. It's a bit better now that it has lights, plus half of these don't see that much traffic. The east-west road is the most important, connecting a major city to a highway.
>>1729077Looks deadly. Where I'm from they'd probably require it to be painted yellow for mobility/vision impaired. Looks like a tight squeeze for a wheelchair on either side.
>>1723259No, its worse: "pretend a bike is a car" signs. Unless they hand them out for the back of bikes, and dick in your hands even then at 55mph. They can read it when its on their windshield. You mean Route 32 past Fort Meade.
>>1729077that's just evil
>>1711408Literally any part of Highway 401 through Toronto during rush hour is a fuck-fuck circus. The on-ramp at Weston street and the interchange with Highway 400 is notoriously terrible during rush hour.
>>1711408This behemoth is one of the reasons why I choose not to live in a metro area.
>>1711522This guys the upskirt filmer
>>1729951There are worse interchanges in Atlanta than that>I-20 @ I-285 on the west sideLeft hand entrances/exits, sharp curves that cause fair amount of tractor trailer rollovers. It's still an original design from when the system was built.>Brookwood splitJust awful because of so many people needing to weave through so many lanes, very sharp curves in the minor ramps>I-75 @ I-285 on the south sideCan't build a stack there because of the runways at Hartsfield so it's just a weird gimped interchange where traffic is always backed up>I-20 @ the Downtown ConnectorIt handles almost the same traffic volume as Spaghetti Junction in a package half the size
>>1729951I know it's in the filename but I knew that was spaghetti junction just by scrolling past the thumbnail. Fuck the perimeter. Fuck Atlanta.
>>1730033>Can't build a stack there because of the runways at Hartsfield so it's just a weird gimped interchange where traffic is always backed upcouldnt they just lower the land and build one?
>>1730145Not without major interruptions to traffic and it would be very expensive... they worked around it by spreading it out a little bit but it's still got some short ramps and cloverleafs.
>>1711408>>1725389What is wrong with this? The highway just ends....like highways should.
>>1725605>AnchorageA physical manifestation of mankind's destruction and hatred of nature. Anchorage is a blackpill of a city
>>1723285It also works very well as long as you're not a retard or American
>>1724436this could have been the cutest little piazza with cafes and a fountain or some shit :(
>>1725389>combining the two great American loves - highways and parkingbeautiful
>>1724940Leach Hwy in Perth, Australia is probably the most dangerous road in the country right now. From memory the government had plans to properly turn it to freeway standard, but obviously that never eventuated.And now it's this cursed forever because of the fucking tree huggers from Murdoch Uni (who don't even live in the area and are largely foreigners or people from north of the river) preventing Roe 9 (a diverting freeway meant to ease traffic on Leach). They all deserve death for creating this road of death traps.This is one of many intersections like yours.Roe 9 could have turned Freo into a proper city again and saved industries in that area. Now it's doomed because Leach can't handle the traffic.
>>1727818>>1727819They actually fixed that recently.
>>1729933Isn't that the widest actively used highway in the world (ignore the 20 lane shit in Burma).
>>1725447Dude, reversing out of 3 basically hits 2.It's retarded as fuck.
>>1731896It's close but it's still easily doable.
>>1731885Why not just gradually shift it? WTF? Isn't Germany known for their planning and engineering??
>>1732166In Germany Berlin is infamous. For horrible planning and bad engineering and waste of money.
>>1732272badly planned and sexy
>>1732272Roads of london (drunk spider web), Roads of Chicago (grid of cow lots, now comparatively care friendly). Its not mysterious. Ironically they started all the roads before cars by following the cows (hence: its a cowpath: for a winding road). Cept Wall Street, which the wall was to keep out the greedy feral pigs.....
>>1731894401 is 22 lanes at the widest point, I10/Katy Freeway in Texas is 26.
>>1732878>Let's live like we did 100 years ago, that'll get them on my side
>>1732878If only I could ride the california cycleway in 1900.
>>1715880I think it's because nobody gives a shit
>>1722734Happens all the time, teslas are like an old sports car - you take it for a spin every other Sunday, not a vehicle you actually use regularly
>>1723233Choke on this cauke retard
>>1723290It's the same scam Apple has going on. If you don't rely on newer technology, getting 20 year old shit really is the way to go. Works just as fine
>>1723450>you never call out those that act that wayWhat do you expect you sissy? Want me to loudly exclaim "what a jerk!" everytime I see a cyclist riding like an asshole??
>>1723811How about you check out the topography of this dick
>>1728460If I see someone driving an Altima, I assume they've committed at least three felonies.
>>1728493I recognize most those people lmao
>>1733581This is fucking based though. They work efficiently and get traffic through in all directions at speed.
>>1732166Berlin is not Germany
>>1733114Okay you win, that's the grandest abomination in this thread
>>1716931Amerishart cope-image kek
>>1737221Ha! Just gets funnier every time you post it, Wang.
>>1737221this makes me feel sick
>>1717343>2 mile radius isn't walkablehow fat are you?
>>1737925He meant culturally. It’s a shithole that has been an economic drain on the nation for decades. It only recently broke even lol. That’s the appeal though, it’s like a gentrified landfill. Yuppies like me can move here and get cushy tech jobs while enjoying the cheap rent and drugs. You wouldn’t catch me dead in another part of Germany.
>>1737941Is the rest of Germany comparatively more expensive to live in?
>>1722734>Imagine driving a car that can’t even start without software allowing itSo pretty much any car made in the last 10 years?
>>1737937there's literally no pavements
