Wow, there are coding guidelines for traffic? OMG | :OMG:

I just skimmed over the start of it, and already stumbled over some curiosity (IMHO) among the pedestrian guidelines:
Quote:
2. If there is no pavement, keep to the right-hand side of the road so that you can see
oncoming traffic. You should take extra care and

- be prepared to walk in single file, especially on narrow roads or in poor light

- keep close to the side of the road.

It may be safer to cross the road well before a sharp right-hand bend so that oncoming
traffic has a better chance of seeing you
. Cross back after the bend.


Does anyone actually do that? I mean, walking on the right side of the road (in a country where cars drive on the left side) makes total sense. But then, crossing to the left side and continuing along the long side of the curve when you encounter a right bend Confused | :confused: If anything, I'd do the opposite: cross over to the left sight upon encountering a left-hand bend, to cut a corner!
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
