status viatoris – being ‘on the way’/being in a state of pilgrimage
Some very helpful instructions from the boss, designed to help a nervous Canadian colleague make the transition to Italian driving.
1. Be constantly alert, you cannot relax your guard for an instant.
2. Being a considerate driver in Italy is highly dangerous, Italian road users are not used to it and may react in a myriad of unexpected ways.
3. Italian drivers are always right. In an event of an accident call the Polizia Locale to decide who is a fault. If necessary, they will then call an ambulance.
4. Be prepared for the fact that Italian drivers Park anywhere, even in the middle of the road. You, however, must only park in the designated parking areas. Check up and down the street for small complicated signs explaining why you shouldn’t park there before you park.
