So I’m not entirely sure where I took this. All I remember was that it an overpass somewhere near Jardin des Champs-Élysées, one of the parks near, well, the Champs-Élysées.

I know that, as kids, we’re always told to look both ways before we cross a road, but this is the first time I’ve had the road itself tell me how to cross it. It’s incredible, excessive and amazing all at the same time. I mean, what do we do when we get to every other road crossing? I guess we all just flap around looking lost and not knowing what to do because the road doesn’t have printed instructions.
On a side (and completely pedantic) note, I disagree with the order in which to look – I’m interpreting these instructions as telling me to look left, then look right. I live in Australia and we drive on the left side of the road here, so I think it makes sense to look to my right first (for oncoming cars in the lane closest to me), then look to the left. And then I usually look to the right again.
Maybe it’s just me.
