She Drives Me Crazy

There are those of you who will point out to me that taking pictures while driving is probably not the best idea.

I know.

But, I couldn't resist the opportunity to show you the streets of Molfetta in action.

Red light at the busy intersection of Via Terlizzi and Corso Fornari.
Red light at Via Baccarini and Piazza Don Luigi Sturzo. Note old lady with shopping bags not being given right of way.
Not yet had your fix of cranes and green shutters? Stick around...

Wow! That video is surely a blast from the past! You certainly are crazy to drive while under the influence of your blog. Not good, Saretta. Not good. But a cool post, nonetheless. 6^)

Do people obey those red lights? I visited Naples a few years back and learned that the city has very few of them since... well...

Knoxville Girl said...

waaaaaaahhhh! can I open my eyes now, are we stopped?- hey, cool shutters!

Ming said...

Oh I think taking pictures while driving is awesome! I love seeing the city. It's like I'm in the car with you!

Saretta said...

Aw, c'mon you guys...all but one of the photos was taken while stopped at a red light! :-)

Per Stromsjo - your question about red lights is valid, particularly in Naples! Red lights are generally respected in Molfetta, but there's a different approach to them...in that they are not considered to be a definitive driving guide. I mean, if no one's coming from the left or the right, why not go through? Or if the light turns red when it was your turn to go thru the intersection...you go anyway. In fact, a green light is no guarantee that it's safe to cross the intersection...best to look both ways! Actually, there are more infractions of right of way. I'll have to take pictures of those signs for you!

Ming - that was the effect I was looking for! I'm glad it felt that way for you!

Are those television aerials on the roofs of the buildings?

Hilda said...

You don't drive me crazy — you are crazy! LOL! Thanks for the trip, Saretta! I hope the old lady with the shopping bags got to cross the street safely.

Ming the Merciless said...

HA! Hope you didn't get a ticket for your photographing while driving (or waiting for the stop light). :-)

Saretta said...

Benjamin - yes, they are tv aerials.

Hilda - she made it, don't worry...just a little bit later than she had hoped!

Ming - ticket? What's a ticket? The police here don't bother with tickets for moving infractions...too much work, perhaps? ;-)
