Oops



During all my time in central Paris, I was always fascinated by these posts that come out of the street to regulate traffic. Some streets are pedestrian-only during certain parts of the day and open to cars at other times, and these posts keep the cars out. But what if you're unfortunate enough to be driving over them right when they're coming up? Well, fortunately there are traffic lights in place to tell you to stop when the posts are going to pop up. But if you run the light, which happens all the time in Paris, you might be in for trouble!

I saw this taxi on Rue Montmartre one morning. I love how his license plate popped off and is just sitting there in front of the car.
