Do you think that crosswalks are installed for the needs of safety? Well, authorities don't always take care of pedestrians' comfort.
Russia you scary.
I think the zebra crossing is being fixed up by workmen and not yet finished.
But get that Local governor out of his helicopter and into a car along that road. And why would those men paint the car parking spaces so close together.
This job was done by tadzhik workers,which never did it before. After that some known blogger made report and officials scared,so they made these tadzhiks do again work there,but now to clear it from paint.
Looks like what I would do if I was really drunk
The muddy roads surely look terrible and they should be improved but I doubt whether the life of the villagers is also as bad as what the roads look like. At least those rough road could mean that people living there are far from being “too much” sophisticated like some people living in a highly civilisized big city are. Of coures I’m not sure, but I guess their mental lives are simple and easy because their physical conditions are so hard.
Just admit it. You have no idea what their quality of life is or whether they are actually content.
Like you would know any better.
Exactly. That’s why i didn’t even try to speculate as to what their quality of life is. I have no clue and i’m not going to pretend to.
That cartoon face thing…….I usually close any internet page with it on as soon I see it. It is a silly thing taken way too far.
ER is “special” so I did not Close the page.
intrsting story, bro
You would hate me, then. I do a particularly scary-good impression of that face.
Yes, I am the ugliest thing on Earth, lol!
This is internet son, get used to it…
This is what over seventy years of Communism has achieved!
In Romania, communism did the same…
Cool i’ve never seen the entire path of bike lane painted a different color like that. but i don’t think it will age well with all the traffic and weather wearing it down.
… depressing life in those muddy regions!
Roads is a significant part of strategic defense system of Russia.
Yes, it worked well against the German in the last war.
The road dept. guys surely failed geometry. It’s got to be tough with the brutal continental climate to maintain paved roads; you’ve got to give them a pass there.
The climate isn’t new, it’s always been there. The roads were poorly designed and built. The designers should have allowed for the climate when the road was built. Without good design and construction, ongoing maintenance is impossible.
The top few pictures to me it looks like a new intersection because the traffic lights still have plastic on them.More than likely one of the contractors working on the road or the lights or the one painting messed up the job or had incorrect instructions or measurements but did the work anyway and that caused everything else to be off.
I am thinking that the paint contractor did it wrong and knew they where doing it wrong but did it anyway then they will charge the government twice the money.It happens all over the world this kind of poor workmanship.
A road near me got new blacktop this road is about 6 miles long before it had lots of passing zones with the dashed lines.After they re topped the road the damn raod gets the no passing double yellow line.Then a month or so later it had the passing lines again some jerk painting contractor did that on purpose.
russia is a huge Animal Farm.
You live on a farm smaller?
An another evil_former_russian_animal lives out of Russia now. It’s unsafe! Kill the escaped pig or stay away from him.
The Zebra crossing being displaced is actually a safety feature.
In the rest of the world they have the zebra crossing on top of the actual crossing but most motorist, doesn’t stop before the zebra, actually they stop on the Zebra. By moving the Zebra a few meters before the actual crossing the are adding safety to the pedestrian
and the parking lots? what are they a tetris platform for aliens?
Holy Tea Aliens did it!
I would laugh at the comical misses of the traffic designers, but it’s not funny when people suffer as a result.
There was recently a news story from Atlanta, Georgia, USA, where a bus stop was about half a mile from the crosswalk. A mother and her children got off the bus, but because she had their groceries and the kids were small, she didn’t want to walk a mile to cross the street. Well, a drink-driver came along and hit one of the children, killing the child.
He got a few months in jail, but then they pressed charges against the mother! They wanted to give her a few YEARS in jail! Yes, she should use the crosswalk, but when a crosswalk is ill-designed, that’s not cool.
I can see the face of those who thumbing down comments here hoowering ower the fields in the very first picture.
a russian would do a gesture with his shoulders and then say:
E Normalo! >> like we are used to it, it’s all day life
I know there were no road marks on russian and ukrainan roads. Just very wide conkrete roads.
Strong ennough to withstand cingular armored vehicles sutch as tanks etc..
Wide ennough to be driven easily by exeptional transport sutch as mobile rocket platforms
I think they were a large network of real Tank and armored vehicle roads in case of defence against
but now all is sadly in decay outthere
ah yes a tip to the road painters: pls learn from
the west: we have 50 years more experience
There certainly are some examples of poor planning here, both in parking lot and cross walk design. But I still have to admit that the United States is the least pedestrian friendly place I’ve encountered (and I live here!). Pedestrians are an after thought. We have expensive malls and office parks, but they lie in a sea of parking lots: they are made to be approached by car. Most places even lack sidewalks.
Sad but true…
