In 1965 when there were no traffic lights in Accra, Ghana’s capital city, motorists and pedestrians seemed very well controlled and traffic was seamless and fluid on the streets.

In the event that there is power outage and the traffic lights are not working,  the situation is even more pronounced and precarious.
