It took me three times as long as the average person to learn to drive. I took driver’s education twice. I had to drive automatic transmission for a year before I mastered stick-shift. Despite all this, I did learn, and in later years have successfully driven in both the US and the UK.
But I am SO glad I never saw this while behind the wheel — I would have been so overwhelmed as to want to curl up into a fœtal ball:
The “Traffic Light Tree” is a sculpture by Pierre Vivant, in London’s Docklands. It’s interesting enough as a visual pun on urban fixtures and London Plane trees, but what insane person decided to forgo the usual park and install such an art piece in the middle of a roundabout?!
