Oh, man. Corporate Mexico. Can't wait to go spend extra on flashingly-wrapped junk. Well, at least I'll have a choice of which side of the highway to pay my phone bill on. Wait, will we able to turn in with all those new humps?

Wow! Surprised it didn't launch that pickup. Gonna be some serious crashes on this carretera. Well, not counting the ones that have already happened. Three moto crashes this week, the 1 in Riberas and 2 in LF. Last one in front of Dominos. Mexican population control.

3 car pile-up in Ajijic on highway today, fender benders all around... all seemingly because of this wonderful roadwork and these installations. There's no room.

Gotcha. It's not really a tile "store". It's a bunch of shipping containers and they're selling tiles, toilets etc. out of them. Nothing permanent about it. Then I would have two convenience stores within walking distance. Let the competition begin! However, given the road rage that is occurring around here, it may just be safer to go down the back streets to the other OXXO in Riberas and then sneak back home the same way. OXXO actually knows how to pay a printed off Telcel bill... the 711 has no clue!

All of this road work makes driving very difficult. Some horrible accidents have occurred.
Why don't the drivers proceed with caution to avoid the accidents. They do not want to. They barrel ahead because they feel it is their right to drive as they please. The road work is not going to stop- get it? Slow down, drive cautiously, proceed with care, save your own life, or move.

Many of us do slow down but many also just barrel through. Only enforcement can slow them down but that is unlikely to happen.

I have visions of accidents like that happening to cars with them landing upside down on the concrete barriers. A killer.

There are lots of people who don't see well after dark. Especially if like me, they haven't had the operation to fix a cataract problem. Those things need to be reflective. However, the fact that highways the world over use reflective centre lines, and post reflectors on their side borders, tells us pretty much everyone wants them... eye problems or not.

I would rather hit a concrete barrier than a person walking. But I specifically do not drive at night because I have always been night blind. Doesn't matter how old you are, if your eyes can't adjust quickly enough to headlights coming at you, you're a hazard.

Then you fall under the " blind category" however along with these new barriers will be additional street lights. I stopped driving to the airport at night because of that dark patch from Ixthulacan to the highway. People who can't see well after dark shouldn't be driving after dark........

I won't do the airport after dark either. Mostly, it's the light sof oncoming traffic when the opposing lanes are so close.

LOL! I hope they're better at replacing burnt out street lights than burnt out traffic lights.

The fun is just beginning! Wait until they start constructing several story high parking garages downtown to house all the cars that parking doesn't exist for 😢

That's really easy to say when you don't have a problem. I used to marvel that my Mom wouldn't drive at night, even after her cataract operations. Now I know why. Some of us don't have much choice, Bob. And it's only those friggin' oncoming super-nova strength headlights that cause a problem for me. And for lots of people I know who don't have vision problems.

Then CG, have the cataract operation. Why should you put somebody in danger because you cannot afford it or do not want to do it? Just do not drive if you are unable to see correctly. You always have a choice to do or not to do something. Do not use that as an excuse and perhaps cause a horrific accident or a death.

Yeah I agree. If you have vision problems don't drive at night. I don't on certain roads.
