What's the craziest intersection in the world?

Busy intersections have always had a reputation for mayhem, but in the age of traffic cameras, we can get a bird's eye view of just how insane some of them are. What's the craziest intersection in the world?


Saint Petersburg (aka Leningrad) in Russia may have been founded by Tsar Peter the Great, but the city's greatest test was in WWII, during the vicious Siege of Leningrad. Still, motorists on Prospekt Slavy apparently face another, less destructive kind of siege daily, among buses, motorcycles and other vodka-soaked Lada pilots. Insurance rates must be through the roof. We hear the Geico Gecko has rated this intersection five "bloody 'ells."

Easy! Place de l'Étoile in Paris, that's the roundabout at the Arc de Triomphe if you don't know.

12 large roads converging in the centre paris plus a load of crazy French driver all of them smoking and hyped up on coffee, the results are inevitable.
