Re. seancb's comment about drivers yielding to pedestrians - in Rome (and perhaps in other Italian cities as well) it is commonplace for pedestrians to cross wherever they like. Pedestrians simply step out into the road, and cars stop.

At crosswalks - which often have no lights - when a pedestrian steps onto the crosswalk, the entire street of cars halts. The presence of a person on foot is like a red light.
