Driving while Stupid

North Coast - www.dr1.com
I rented a car and drove to the Haitian border to pick up my girlfriend. It's always an adventure driving, but I was really surprised by how obnoxious the drivers were on the route from Santiago to Puerto Plata over the mountain. There was heavy construction the whole way, but I was being passed up like a dirty shirt and I'm generally a fast driver.

When the flag man, rolled a barrel out to stop traffic, the car in front of me was having none of that and drover over the pylons to continue where he immediately encountered the oncoming single lane traffic.

So, it was with great amusement that I was pulled over for doing 80 in a 60 and being run over in the process. The cop must have had the same challenge as a cheetah with a herd of zebras. My girlfriend immediately sidelined me by saying that I don't speak Spanish and then continued to berate and sweet talk him until the poor guy let us go after 30 minutes.

I've seen some really bad and reckless driving, but Friday afternoon won the prize. And, yes, there are three lanes on a 1.5 lane road. I now have proof.

And, the stupid party? Myself. I'd have been much better off and probably cheaper hiring a taxi. So, a confession, in a way. Please be cautious.

And, wow, those migration folks are thick on the border. > 5 checkpoints and they checked my trunk multiple times (empty). Every guagua was getting the fine comb treatment.
