Basically what has happened here is that all the roads are full with cars and all the cars try to cross the road at the same time. Let’s translate this into computer terms; the cars in this case are the threads and the cross-over is the “thing” that handles these threads. In the illustration above all the cars have driven into the cross-over at the same time and they can’t really back up, hence there’s a deadlock and there’s no way to go.

You don't solve deadlocking by using locking and semaphores. You can *achieve* deadlocking that way, but you certainly don't solve it that way.
