Passionate may understand software users, but they get carried away in this post about their love for Japan's road system.

Sure those manhole covers look neat, but Japan suffers from a vastly higher rate of automobile- related fatalities than the design-challenged U.S. If you get away from the award winning design stuff in Tokyo and head out to the suburbs, telephone poles jut out into every side road, leaving cars to swerve into oncoming traffic, bikers and kids walking home from school.

I'll take plain safe roads over designer manhole covers anytime.
