That's the only thing that puts me off, actually. Car drivers are horribly inconsiderate of bikers and scooter riders. (And pedestrians. And horse riders. And cyclists).
Perfectly summed up. Thank you.Road rage: I often wish other drivers to die a painful death along with their whole family when I'm even slightly inconvenienced in traffic. I also like driving next to and getting a good gander at anyone whose slighted me on the road to see what they look like. No matter what they look like, they always look exactly as what I expected. But I don't do rage-driving. I just yell safely inside my vehicle.
It was a genuine question, the only time I've seen horses are when I'm out jogging on the hill (and it's a very rare occurrence)I took that as an 'only cars should be on roads' jibe!
If it's a genuine question: riders have no choice but to go on the roads in a lot of places, even if only to get to a more suitable place to go hacking/trail riding. There are often no or only narrow verges, few bridle paths, restrictions riding on protected natural landscape, fenced-off private land, and only a small percentage of riders actually own or rent land they can ride on, other than small arenas they can hire on stable yards. Drivers who aren't riders or farmy types naturally hate this and there are a good many accidents.
I wonder what goats protest aboutCan't speak for other countries, but I see them regularly here in Mexico, even on the highway. I've also been witness to 15 goats take over a surface street akin to a peaceful protest. They were completely unattended btw.
Yup, no matter what country I'm in I never assume drivers will give me right of way as a pedestrian just because the law says so.I don't feel that freedom. Too many idiots around for you to chill in traffic. Traffic kills more people here than disease. Every year we have dead pedestrians in the city who were just doing what they're supposed to.
No clue, but just.... Surreal. Guadalajara is a city of 4M people or so. They're inhabitants insist it's a city, I like to point out it isn't. Protesting goats, horses on freeways, a subway with only two lines and everything closing at 10pm are not urban hallmarks. Oh they're also the only city I know of that have traffic lights on the freeway.I wonder what goats protest about
