Acapulco Traffic Education
(Acapulco, NA 26 November) This cartoon appeared in today’s edition of Novedades Acapulco. The Caption reads, “In Acapulco, the maxim of roadway education is ‘save yourself if you can!’ .” Many visitors will probably agree. By local custom, the right-of-way belongs to the city buses; if you do not give it to them, they will take it from you. Then automobiles are next, as drivers of cars are mostly aggressive and in a rush to some obviously important appointment. Pedestrians, who usually have the right of way in most countries of the civilized world, are, as a practical matter, in third position.
