Moving House

Looks like someone is moving to another house. The auto rickshaw has "Horn Please" written on the tailgate. Most, if not all, goods transport vehicles, such as trucks, have this written on the back. On the left side you see a scooter and an auto rickshaw moving on the wrong side of the road. Increasingly, the roads have dividers now, so people have to travel to the next intersection and make a U-turn. But some people just drive on the wrong side of the road and go in the other direction endangering pedestrians (there are hardly any sidewalks), other vehicles and themselves. People do this even if there is no divider, if the distance they are traveling in the opposite direction is "short" (in their view). What we need is spikes!

hmm u turns as u please and driving on the "wrong" side of the road... sounds like driving around there might be a tiny bit more challenging but definitely never boring

:) Spikes would not solve the problem, time (hopefully) will. My daughter tells me the same road stories from the Sudan.
