Road Hazards . . . They Have the Right of Way!

Posted on February 15th, 2011

Recently while driving through the bush on a back road to our place, we encountered several elephants, mother and young. Thankfully, Keith saw them before we posed a threat and we were able to reverse and let them pass. If angered or threatened, they can flatten a truck in no time! They have the right of way!

Last week coming home late at night from Wednesday night Bible study, two huge hippos were leisurely crossing the highway. Because of their dark color, they were difficult to see. Thankfully, we stopped in time. They have right of way!

Daily, the cattle, goats, and dogs stand and lie in the middle of the road, totally unfazed by the traffic around them. Unfortunately, they too have right of way!

Besides the tire-sized pot holes that can cause a blow out or worse (It is absolutely necessary to have a spare tire at all times and no donuts, PLEASE!), we have living, moving road hazards that keep one alert when driving at all times. Thus, it is no surprise that it is against the law to talk on your cell phone and drive.

Happy dodging, ahem, driving in Botswana!
