Linear control

Found this interesting photo over at taken in Seoul. I'm not sure what it is exactly but it's a very intriguing concept: demarcation lines is all it takes to mark boundaries and lanes on a street.

I love that it is minimalist; more so what it says about self-discipline. No need to put up barricades like fences, wires and cement blocks (in the Philippines, such construction projects are susceptible to graft and corruption). Also, said blockades, which have taken up a lot of space in Manila's main thoroughfare, EDSA, are still not effective enough to discipline drivers, and have also been known to be causes for accidents.

If implemented in Manila, you think this will only create mayhem? How much trust do you place in Filipino drivers?

I'm pretty sure Ruby will say zero :-P
