There’s at least half a dozen crossings where it’s equally hard for pedestrians and drivers to see the other party, not to mention the lack of traffic lights (or, you know, that one specific traffic light for drivers that pedestrians can’t even see until they’re already crossing) combined with the way we all know Koreans like to drive.
