Flora is like fashion.
It pays little heed to human functionality.
The other day I saw a pimped-up Audi come round a roundabout (indicator, what indicator?) noticeably faster than the scores before him. A motor-caravan decided to cross the path he had not yet defined and rather than slow down in good time he preferred to sound his horn.
Because there was vegetation (bushes etc) in the roundabout, neither was fully aware of the others' existence & then intentions.
The moral - prettiness and visibility are in conflict at such locations. And drivers of expensive cars are far less likely to be considerate. (Stamford Uni did the research BTW).
