Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Actually, "the rules of the road" do not exist in Bulgaria, either. Here the pedestrian should be cautious not to be run over by a car and not the other way around. Because if you get hit, there is great chance that the driver won't even stop to call an Ambulance. Being a pedestrian hare is quite risky.

True Story:

I had an aquaintance who was the victim of a hit and run in Moscow.  She was crossing the street and a police car hit her and sped away.  She lay barely conscious in the street for close to an hour hour while we tried to get an ambulance to come.  While we were waiting for the ambulance, we went to the police station (right across the street from the accident!) to report the accident and the police responded by asking me and my friend if we had boyfriends and would we like some.

Stranger than fiction.
