Danger on the Highways in Colombia

Posted on May 10, 2011 • Filed under: Colombia, Social Issues, TRAVEL

As reported by elespectador.com through video, along the highways drivers, especially those of public transportation vehicles are performing dangerous maneuvers. For example, as the video follows traffic on the Cali-Buenaventura road, it captures drivers passing others on the road multiple times even on curves in the road and even while on a cellphone. Other drivers continue at high speeds even at curves. These practices even put young people in danger who may ride bicycles on the road and achieve high velocities while holding on to trucks. Also, cars at high velocity put young pedestrians crossing the road in danger. (JR)
