Who needs traffic lights? Not the drivers in Ethiopia - Video
This made me so uncomfortable.
Oh look it’s Abuja in a nutshell.
aside from very few intersections this how it works in haiti. most of the roads ain’t paved either (though they’ve been working on that consistently)
how do people cross the street without dying
The first time I was in Addis and we came up to Meskel square (this intersection) I thought I was gonna die haha. Eventually you get used to the driving back home, surprisingly there hardly any accidents, I say they are the most amazing drivers in the world!
i was so stressed watching this
do they even have car insurance out there.
I am watching thinking about my deductible the entire time
And this is bad but not even as bad as it gets. In smaller market towns the roads are unpaved, have massive crater-holes (NOT pot holes) and people drive in the opposite direction all the time. So you’re dodging massive craters, people and the occasional driver going in the opposite direction down YOUR side of the road. Like this at least has some semblance of order compared to like…. Aba, Nigeria.
And also like there are some places (like Abuja) where many places do have lighted intersections…. But then we don’t have constant electricity, which can go out for WEEKS even in Nigeria, so it ends up a mess like this….
And car insurance ???? Let’s start with valid drivers licenses that are legitimately acquired and aren’t bought on the cheap, if you go through the trouble of getting one at all…
Godspeed to all of those pedestrians.
