YouTube user Wade Shepard shares with us this dystopian-seeming scene of what life is like when the rules of the road are reneged. In this clip, filmed overlooking an intersection in Taizhou, China, all manner of motor-vehicles are seen in a maddening melee to get where they’re going, as if no regulations were in place to make the process run smoother.

While impatient drivers show little hesitation to risk a fender-bender in all this jockeying, crossing the street appears to be a life-threatening endeavor for folks on foot, like a level on Frogger you have to be an expert to get to.

Shepard points out that such reckless road behavior is common throughout China — a nation, he notes, with one of the highest rates of car accidents in the world.
