					      Worst. Intersections.
                      Ever.
You’ll look at your daily commute in a whole different
light after seeing some of these bad boys…
 Think your drive to work is bad in the
  morning? Well, unless it involves one of the
  following, chances are it isn’t the world’s
  worst.
 A guide to the world’s most confusing (and
  frustrating!) intersections.




Introduction.
   First up, we’ve
    got this. Definitely
    not one for those
    prone to
    vertigo…

China’s spiral bridge approach.
   Phew! This one isn’t
    the prettiest from an
    aerial standpoint.
    You can definitely
    appreciate the
    difficulty you’d have
    navigating it
    though…                 Image via Curious Read




Taganskaya Square, Moscow
   The Place de l’Etoile
    which goes around
    the Arc De Triomphe
    in Paris may be
    picturesque, but it’d
    be a nightmare to
    drive!

The Arc De Triomphe
   All I’m going to say
    is try getting from A
    to B here. The picture
    says enough!

More Shanghai madness
   The UK doesn’t get
    off by any stretch of
    the imagination, this
    one is so complicated
    that it needs its own
    guide…




Swindon’s magic roundabout!
   Proving that
    America always
    does it as well as
    anyone else, here’s
    this ladder-like
    intersection from
    Chicago

Chicago
   This intersection is
    made super
    complicated by the
    unique pedestrian
    crossing. Getting
    through that without
    breaking your
    windshield might be
    easier said than done!   Image by Seabaryo/Flickr




Criss crossing in Tapei
   Just looking at this
    interchange in New
    Jersey is enough to
    give me a sore head.
    Wouldn’t want to
    drive it!              Image from Google Maps




Newark Airport Interchange
   This one in Atlanta
    looks more like a
    spider’s web than
    a stretch of road.

Tom Moreland Interchange
   We’ll end it on the
    original spaghetti
    junction – the UK’s
    Gravely Hill
    Interchange.

Gravelly Hill Interchange
   See? That daily grind isn’t so bad after all,
    right?




The end.
