the world's most confusing traffic lights, God bless China.
Chinese officials install 20 sets of lights on single pole.Motorists in China have been left bemused by this traffic signalling system, where officials installed over 20 sets of lights on a single pole at a crossroad.
The baffling traffic light junction was spotted at a set of crossroads in Chongqing City in China, and looks too confusing for even the most experienced driver.
Those approaching the lights could be forgiven for thinking they were nearing the world's most complicated junction.
The system appears to employ well over a dozen sets of conventional traffic lights pointing in all direction with no additional signs to explain anything to frustrated drivers.
Authorities have explained, however, that the lights should be ignored - because they were only installed for decorative purposes and do not direct drivers.
One motorists said: 'When you look at one light it's red but the one next to is it green.
'No-one knows where or when to go because they just seem to change randomly.'
A traffic official said: ''They are just for decoration because the junction looked bare. They look very pretty at night but drivers should just ignore them.' This is what you call Beautification of the road- The Chinese Way. Can we hire these guy's to beautify our street, Anyway's we always ignore the traffic light's.
