At intersections in downtown Auckland, the pedestrians cross the street in 4 directions at once. It's actually pretty efficient, but slightly alarming to us foreigners at first. After the cars have all had a turn, the streetlights stop all the traffic and the pedestrians get their turn to go any which way: all the people going north/south, plus the peole going east/west. plus you're even allowed to cross diagonally. It's quite a sight.
