Rome

Zebra crossings in Rome are just like the ones in England, except that the cars don’t stop.

I saw a little old lady nearly get hit, and hurl abuse at the driver of the car. He ignored her, which is probably just as well as it was a police car.

That’s why the film The Italian Job is a work of fiction. In real life, if they sabotaged all the traffic lights in Rome nobody would notice.
