If you have ever visited Mexico city in your lifetime you know all about the problem of people speeding, swerving and flying through stop signs. Mexico’s traffic problem is that no one follows the basic driving instructions everyone does what they want when they want even huge 18 wheeler’s. Driving in Mexico is all about your reaction time you have to constantly be looking around for other drivers and even the people because one second there not there then the next your getting t-boned by a taxi driver in punch buggy beetle. Mexico’s main reason for all of it’s accidents is that there are no lanes like the ones we have in the states that split into three lanes but Mexico doesn’t. In Mexico they merge into the middle of the street not knowing how far to go into lane causing for very dangerous accidents. Not having lanes also means people from the other direction can merge into your lane causing for people to swerve or worse head on collisions.
