Driving in Albania = White Knuckles!

No lanes painted on the road surface. Drivers just make up the rules as the go along I guess. Bicycles weave in and out of traffic and pedestrians walk across the road seemingly not even paying attention to the cars and trucks on the road. Horns honk consistently as drivers just signal to let you know they are there.

Interestingly enough, it is said that the ratio in Albania is less accidents than in the USA.

I heard that may be due to the fact that you are imprisoned if you are involved in an accident that causes injury to someone else. Now, that's a consequence.

Well, these are videos taken by Katrina during her Albanian mission. She said it was the scariest part of the whole adventure!

This one below is of a traffic jam and in it you'll see Mary freaking out! It's every car, truck and bus for himself!
