RIGHT OF 'NO WAY' JOSE!

Why did the chicken cross the road?
Because she was forced to by a semi behind her…
And yeah, that chicken be me.
What can I say?
The drivers in Mexico are tenacious.
And traffic patterns?
HAHAHAHAHA!
There are no patterns…
There are no rules…
There are also no road signs..
Except ‘stop’…
But that’s just a suggestion.
There are also no lines on the roads…
Well, there are lines…
But they’re too faint to see.
But if you could see the lines…
It wouldn’t matter. No one would pay attention to them…
Drivers drive anywhere they want to on the road…
Two lanes? Three lanes? Whatever you feel like today.
Turn signals?
Seldom are they used...
But when they are...
More often, it’s not which direction they are turning...
It's which way they want you to go...
And you feel like you’re taking a pop quiz…
‘What does the turn signal on that car mean?'
And when you approach an unmarked intersection...
It's ''Dodge 'em drivers!'
I need to trade my Jeep in for a tank…
Or a gigantic bumper car….
Or just take a taxi...
Because most taxis have a rosary hanging on the mirror....
And/or a saint on the dash...
So all I have to do is get in, close my eyes…
And pray!

Always, Em-Musing

And add that drinking in a vehicle isn't illegal and you've really upped the stakes!

WOW on the road rules and to think a woman got some jail time for engaging in some road aggression, words and then threw her Big Gulp out the window splashing soda on another drivers car!

I wonder if the traffic patterns are different if its morning or late afternoon? :)

Closing my eyes and praying works for me. Its gotten me out of a lot of tough situations over the years.
