Traffic in Addis is insane. It’s just crazy. I was recently with a family who lived in New York. They said that the insanity of Addis traffic puts New York City’s traffic to shame.
Instead of explaining the vehicles we saw in Ethiopia, I figured I’d share a few pictures.
The red trucks on the right? If I understand correctly, they have a reputation of shutting down at inopportune times. They’re not looked upon favorably. The truck on the left is a water delivery truck. I’ll talk more about water in the next post.
Put all of this together and it looks like an insane video game. I didn’t take this video, but it captures the traffic perfectly.
This might give Frogger a run for his money.
