There was a good piece about this on the BBC news this morning. Apparently the road crossing is still attracting fans from all around the world. The motorists (particularly the taxi drivers) are thoroughly fed up with it as they hold the traffic up by having their photographs taken.

It's a major tourist attraction.  The Japanese in particular like to visit.
