The more you watch, the more you notice.

The problem? There is never less traffic because Abbey Road is a busy road.

So they try it for half a second but then panic and run away when traffic approaches.

You can sense their sadness that they weren't able to capture it in a photo. :(

Shortly after that you notice this.

When you look at them do this you start wondering if they are fascinated by The Beatles or just fascinated by zebra crossings.

Traffic starts building on either side. Still they stay still. People walking by keep staring at them. Still they do not move. Ten photos are taken of them. Nope nope nope.

But then this happens.

Local drivers who are just like, "Oh god not this again...." And thanks to there being sound on this webcam, you get to hear all of it.
