They drive as if there are no laws, which as far as I know could be true. They drivers don't pay attention to the lines dividing lanes. So a road that may have only three lanes going south and another three going north is treated like there are five or six lanes going each direction. The drivers speed up fast and brake even faster making you feel like you are being tossed around the car. If a driver needs to make a U turn they just go ahead and make it as soon as the dividers allow it, sometimes they look and wait for on-coming traffic other times they just pull out into the traffic because they know the cars coming will see them and either slow down or swerve out of the way. The drivers here have to be very observant and pay close attention to what they are doing because not only are the drivers crazy but there are people walking and biking all down the sides of the roads. The bikers will pull out into traffic to go around other bikes or walkers without looking because they know the cars won’t hit them. Walkers are the same way. They will cross intersections not caring if cars are turning or not because the cars won’t hit them, although I often wonder how they don’t. The drivers will come flying up to a turn and fly past walkers inches in front of or behind them. Or they will pull up to the people who are in front of them and honk until the people are out of their way. The reason the people are so brave is because they know the cars won’t hit them because it’s so expensive to pay for all the medical bills plus thousands on top of that. On the bright side as crazy as the drivers are they all must be very good in order to not crash. Plus I have heard that it is not only expensive to get a license but it is very difficult to pass the test, which leads to the understanding that the drivers much be skilled.
