Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan with a population of about 104,000 residents, is one of only two capital cities in the world without traffic lights. Ironically, the other one is the Kingdom of Tonga. A set of traffic lights, however, were in fact installed several years ago, but residents complained that it was too impersonal. This is why the beloved white-gloved policeman continue to direct traffic today. This scene is most likely the most photographed in the small city.
