Traffic in Yerevan , Armenia
Well.Im doing blogging again , and this time the plot is a very interesting one. I would like to talk about the traffic in Yerevan , Armenia.I always knew how bad it was , abut now coming from the United States I realized how much it sucks.
So as we know in every civilized society there are traffic regulations, and obviously we have those regulations too. Lets say what is bothering me.
Lets start from the cars, you can see all kinds of cars , and contrast is just killing , very expensive ones and veeeeeery old soviet cars and trucks, that should have been out a long time ago. But still this is not a real problem we should admit it , first when you get one road to drive there are no lanes to follow your way, if the street is supposed to take 3 lanes in each direction , now its a bizzare situation, its just like a crowd, cars are going in a messy way even crossing the massive lines of the roads, who cares????
And plus to this there is no speed limit, so can you picture that road?? No lanes , no speed limits, no rules, so driving here just makes you sick , and if the pedestrian wants to cross the street in a appropriate place there can be a car right in that place , he is waiting for the red light to go, WHAT THE FUCK , he is not supposed to be there so the cars are going , people cross the street wherever they want, and its getting a one huge massive mass. Oh yeah, even in one way street you have no guarantee that you wont be hurt from the other side, so youd better be secure and careful.
As we all know there are special parking spots at the streets , but in Armenia it is parking spot everywhere, you can park your car wherever you want, NO FINE TICKETIf you want you can park even on a sidewalk, we should admit this one is just over control.
And in this whole fucked up situation , obviously there are some policemen at the streets, they are there for hunting, but now following the rules. If accidentally you are not lucky that day and your car is getting towed, you just give 1 or 2 $ to him , and you are all set, so as you see the corruption works really good over here. MONEY DOES EVERYTHING HERE, YOU HAVE IT , YOU GOT IT.
No seatbelts are required in Yerevan , there are no laws against it. You should be 16(how I know) to get a license, but you can drive underage too if you have money.
Oh and lets talk about the amazing public transportation in Yerevan , its just unique , no other country has such attraction, thats just killing me. We have all kinds of transportations, buses, micro buses(marshutka), trolley buses, subway and the rails of trains , but the trains dont exist just the rails, so ridiculous . You can get everywhere in a city with public transportation , and it costs 25 cents, what about the buses they are not that bad, I mean they are old , but anyways, but when the case is coming to the micro buses , I need to take a breathe right here. Ok so let me go on telling the details, those are small buses , which are the most popular in the country. So technically there are like 15 seats in the damn bus, but it cares 35 people at the same time ,so if you are smart enough go figure. It is so self humiliating to ride those buses , because you cant feel the parts of your own body, and somebody else can be on you literally you can feel their bodies . Where is the personal space , is so humiliating. There are no specific stops for those buses people can stop them whenever and wherever they want, like in every corner, even in the middle of the street, so if you are brave enough just get out of that fuckin machine. Oh the drivers those should be in museums , they are just so different and unique in their way, the rudeness of those has no limits. So basically its a struggle to ride a bus, if you are smart enough you will place your body in that self humiliating car. After all this safe ride
Oh yeah and the roads , I forgot this important factor, they are just miserable, its like a roller coaster to drive , there are halls everywhere, especially out of downtown area , ph my god when this country is gonna be a country. There is always a budget for such things , but the ministers take this money and build a house for themselves on that roads, a very nice palace for their own , just not giving a fuck about the people. They do what they want. Where you can see such things? Thats why Im saying that this not a country, its just absurd to call this a country, this just a geographic space where a ethnic group of people live , oh it was too much , to survive , this is the right word.
Im not exaggerating anything , everybody is welcome to Armenia to see all this staff with their own eyes. Come on in , this is an amazing place to be , to entertain yourself seeing all these ridiculous thingsCome on in
