Where are the railroad crossing pole guards? That's a busy urban intersection, I bet vehicles get hit there all the time.

He almost made it, just caught the tail end.

ALTO = high, tall, upper, superior, loud, lofty, long, upward, aloud, stop, halt, and standstill.

Obligatorio = required

Aqui = here

I'm guessing it was in another country but I've seen intersections like that here too.

I assumed Mexico. Could be points further south, too.

Do they have traffic signs in both languages in Tejas?

Not that I've ever seen. Road signs are state-mandated designs, so I'd imagine even right on the border they wouldn't risk being so controversial.

Looks more like trapeze equipment. Now that the circus has closed, would this be a new act for the Flying Wallendas?

I heard that's in Mexico, trucks climbing the hill are given the largest radius on each turn so they can go faster and lose less momentum on each turn.
I looks like an invitation to a head on collision, but when there's a truck coming straight at you most peoples subconscious kicks in causing them to scream, shit, and change lanes. Usually.

I guess that makes sense, but jeez. Couldn't they have made the arrows on the road less whack?

Interesting--I would have guessed it was for the benefit of the trucks going down, so they could take the inside turn and be less likely to swing outward and fall off the edge. Either way, it looks like top speed is about 30 mph, so it's probably pretty well-controlled.

Not necessarily in that order.
