There's a live webcam at that street crossing, so if you want to know what's going on in London day or night, here you go:

Abbey Road Crossing

It's funny, because sometimes you see people imitating the Beatles' walk across the road, with their friends taking pictures... and drivers getting annoyed.

I know! It's scary, isn't it? I suppose if you live there it's just second nature, but I tense up just watching it.

This morning there were some people standing in the crosswalk, doing their Beatle poses. I'm sure the drivers loved that.

Woahhhhh!! Rob, I was watching the webcam and just saw an almost accident!! One car barely stopped for a doofus that turned in front of him. And what's with the squiggley road lines? Was the guy running the machine drunk?

I missed it! I gotta believe there've been a goodly number of accidents there over the years.

I was wondering about the squiggles, too. They weren't there in 1969. Can't imagine why they'd favor those over straight lines.

The first post on this page, Alex. It has a link to a webcam at the Abbey Road crosswalk in London. The lanes on the street are marked with squiggly lines rather than straight ones.

Their mothers would be so proud.

It sure doesn't take long to see groups of three or four people stopping in the road to have their picture taken! Maybe they should have a "Beatles stop light" set up.

One guy was going across, and stopped in pose for his picture to be taken...You could hear his friend say, "No! They were going the other way!", so he turned around and posed in the opposite direction.

Hey Sis, I wonder how many people have hit their brakes thinking there was actually something in the way in the road?

Rob, thanks for the cool additions, I had no idea this picture had been copied so many times?

I can see Otis Campbell driving there at night after having "a snoot full".

So that's what Otis's last name is! I always wondered that...
