Therefore, in order to shorten the distance and make the roads more often camphor created such architectural solutions, a life which is not only easier, but it becomes much more difficult. Such decisions often destroy, but is sometimes used as entertainment for visitors.
Among such solutions can be distinguished street-zigzag in San Francisco. Here in California are constantly visited by people, tourists and residents of neighboring towns just to visually see clear evidence of the negative impact of civilization on human life, which not only does not improve the conditions of life, but also a threat to her.
