That's why. You had some flood, but you couldn't anything to dry it with, so you had to drink it all

That's a nice intersection 2. Too bad that the picture's quality is a bit off. Welcome to the forums btw!

Actually, Blimkie, that is the San Bernardino section of I-10. To be exact, your photo is taken on the westbound 10 as it passes under I-15 in Ontario.

Personally the largest one i've been through are all the Shanghai interchanges, they are chaotic but not as bad as i thought. Strangely did not see any traffic incidents on the freeways there in all of the 12 weeks i stayed there, i must say their driving skills are aggresive but first rate, everybody know where they are going.
Have heard from friends that American drivers are crap, on the freeway in Boston there were apparently overturned SUV's at almost every offramp.

KAD\ZSD intercharge in St. Petersburg:


The most interesting thing is that it was built 2 years ago and there had been NO ROADS AT ALL before (all parts of the intercharge were built in 2005-2007). That's why there isn't any satellite images of it.

You people waste hell lot of land in making interchanges, which are built for a fickle reason that the drivers don't have to slow down or stop at the intersection. How foolish

You rather have 200,000 vehicles a day to stop at traffic lights?

Free-flowing intechanges are both safer and have a higher capacity than roundabouts or traffic light-controlled intersections.
