This I for any of the LJs who are thinking about making the trip to the International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque: Beware of Albuquerque drivers, a they are stupid, illiterate, color blind, no depth perception, hostile, and with numerous DWI convictions (one has 27, and only gets slapped on the wrist).
As an example: Uses the exit lane and shoulders to pass. Will pass at high rate of speed to make an immediate left or right turn in front of you. Stop signs and red lights have no meaning. Goes opposite way on round-a-bouts. Do not, for any reason, look at the occupants in another vehicle or you will be shot, “He was dogging me”. When the appropriate finger is thrown at you it’s just their way of showing their single IQ status. When approaching an intersection, they will charge out in front of you.
I know there are other cities where this happens, but all I want to do is for you to be safe when you get here. For those who have never been to the Balloon Fiesta, it is the thrill of a lifetime to be able to walk out onto the field in amongst the balloons while they are filling them. Might even be asked to offer some help.
And no, I do not belong to the ABQ CofC.
