ATLAS: vol.1 Bogotá, CO– Crossing the Streets

Always an adventure, crossing a Bogotano street.  The cars, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians seem to intuit through traffic, coming within inches of each other.

Carrera 14 mostly has green walk signals on separate posts from the traffic lights– a green silhouette, which starts to flash when only seconds remain– but Carrera 11 mostly does not.  Even when the cars have a red light, watch out for right and left turners.  Cars do slow when a pedestrian is in their way, but not very much.  And we pedestrians will pick up our feet and hustle when a car or bike is quickly oncoming.  A car turning is a better bet to cross than a pause in the traffic.
