Busy little intersection

FTLComm - Tisdale - Monday, September 4, 2006

It wasn't difficult to spot, the biggest darn truck I've ever seen so I moved out east of town to await its departure from town and as it turned out they had decided to stay the night.

But sitting out there across from the PetroCanada bulk station I wasimpressed with the volume of traffic that sputtered through the four way stop at the intersection of highways 3 and 35. I pointed the video camera at the scene for more than ten minutes and then compress that time into about thirty seconds and the video below pretty much tells the story.


The compression of time is enhanced with the compression of space as the telephoto lens reduces perspective crunching things that would normally seem far apart but this also adds to the over all situation. There is a huge amount of traffic that goes through that intersection in ten minutes and as you can, the variety of that traffic is quite remarkable.

One thing also was obvious, older vehicles and Chrysler products both which do not have visible daytime running lights are a danger to everyone on the road.
