    You should come to Aberystwyth, the town planners were either drunk or high (or both) when they designed the road layout on the new estate.

    This (magic) roundabout in Swindon looks strange when you first come up to it:

    Nobody can beat the Romans at road building... 2000 years and some are still in use today...

    I am fairly sure this image is photoshopped, the only toll plaza that looks anything like this is the Las Pinas Toll Plaza and it is on the coast, the queue of cars would be in the bay.

    I could be wrong and maybe it is not Metro Manila but what other part of the country is that developed.

    edit: NLEX Balintawak Toll Plaza has some characteristics of this photo but is not a built up area.

    I think it was meant to be humorous,and having travelled through the tolls in Manila I found it as such! I n posting it I really didnt expect it to be scrutinised in a serious vein!
    I must be more careful I guess
    I reckon the guy driving the car in a later post probably doesnt use a white stick in reality,and again is probably an attempt to be humorous.
    I guess I understand the difference in the 2 posts

    Memes start this way and even when something like this is intended as humour it often reinforces stereotypes.

    I am just pointing out that it is very likely made up a great many people can't tell the difference.

    Looks like one of the NLEX Toll Plazas.

    I would like to find the one in the original opening post if it exists.

    I think they are the same!
    Look at the bill boards..Same advertising space IMO.
    Both have 17 toll booths.
    Tree line and landscape...Same.

    Good game this!

    I'll give you that and agree that it is Balintawak, there just seems to be an awful lot of perspective compression in the original image.

    So I will retract my photoshopped assertion John.
