look left, look right……why bother?

Filed under: Jim's Entries — jim @ 2:25 pm

Riding to and from work almost every day is a real adventure, especially with the ever present threat of either running into pedestrians or vehicles. The reason? because no pedestrians here bother to look both ways (or more suitably just look) when they cross the roads. Add to that the fact that all drivers think they can just use the force to navigate….turning this way or that, stopping willy nilly with no attempt at using indicators (I think they are deactivated on cars here)! It just doesn’t make sense….given all the money that is paid for a licence here – in excess of 1000 euros.
