hazard light / “chicken-bus”

Driving with flashing warning lights has a high informative value here in central america. By the “chicken busses” it means: attention, I will stop right away or I had just stopped, attention, upcoming humbs or I have forgotten to turn it off, I still can take passengers or I am full (that´s here in guatemala inconceivable), maybe it means joy about the just passed exhaust emission test but it always means: caution, I´m completely regardless.

By the way: flashing left or right means: caution, one of my flashing lights is broken. And for those who hadn´t a proper hazard lights system, there is a monument in the graveyard of chichicastenango.
