The reasons why roads in Haiti kill and cause harm

Haiti is considered a country with the worst transport system in the Caribbean. Here is a partial list of the reasons:


Traffic is usually chaotic with roads generally unmarked. Lanes are not marked and there are many roads with no signs to indicate the direction of traffic flow.

Some drivers do not have Driver's License. They use Receipt of citation when stopped by the Police.

Not all drivers use turn indicators or international hand signals properly.

Speed limits are rarely posted. they are generally ignored when posted.

Edge of roads frequently make it impossible to see around corners. Drivers usually edge their cars into the road at intersections to check for oncoming traffic.

With such a condition, can you tell me what to expect?
