Traffic Lights

Ever come to a red light at night? Ever stopped at that light when no one came from any direction but the light stayed red? Ever been in one of those situations and just set for five or more minutes? We’ve all suffered that grating experience and sat afraid a cop waited just out of sight. Well you won’t experience such stupidity in Mexico because you’d have pulled across the lane and continued on before I put the question mark at the end of the opening sentence.—Bill, and now on to this week’s column.

Alvin Starkman is our guest writer this week for Bill’s Mexican Road Rules. When I met Alvin I didn’t know what kind of a fellow he was as he came from his B&B on a small motorcycle to lead myself and “Mexico” Mike Nelson to his home. He whizzed into the Pemex station where we waited. After a ten second hello, he pulled his bike sideways onto the street to halt traffic in a busy intersection so we could exit the station. I didn’t need to see or hear anything more about Alvin; this guy knew Mexico. I spent more than a week at Alvin and Arlene’s Casa Machaya Oaxaca Bed & Breakfast ( Alvin is a true expert on Oaxaca and I use him as a resource. If you’re traveling to that verdant land I recommend you contact Alvin with questions—but now let’s enjoy his knowledge and humor on driving in Oaxaca.
