I was in Rome for a long weekend and I saw a lot of interesting stuff. One of the most interesting ‘sights’ was seeing how some people drive over there.
Most drivers did not give pedestrians the right of way at pedestrian crossings. I was in the middle of road at a crossing, when one driver came speeding down the road and hooted for me to get away. He topped up the hooting by giving me a loaded look. I had heard of Italian drivers before, but I did not expect it to be like that. Many drivers in Lusaka are just like the Italian ones as they seem to think that pedestrians have no right to be anywhere near a road.
I have been spoiled by Viennese drivers who are courteous and don’t hoot at you.
