Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Share a picture that captures a fleeting moment on the street.

a truck about to run us over

Fleeting moment in southern Italy, 2008

We were warned about Italian drivers, but we weren’t scared. Even the dozens of dings and dents in the rental car didn’t deter us from driving in Italy. The only time we second-guessed our decision was when we encountered this crazy truck driver while waiting for a red light in a small city in the southern part of the country. He was determined to make his turn, ignoring the cars in his way. All vehicles in the vicinity had to make some creative maneuvers, including driving on the sidewalks, before the truck could turn and the other cars could proceed. We were laughing hysterically, but the locals just seemed mildly disgruntled. No wonder so many vehicles in southern Italy have dings and dents!
