    Default How much does a scratch on SUV cost?

    In Higuey, it costs a human life. Not just once, twice.

    This afternoon, a man who was with his wife and daughter killed with 2 shots another man, in front of Iberia supermarket, who had just moments before inadvertently scratched with his passola the killer's SUV.

    We had a similar case in Higuey like this just after New Year's, where a group of evangelicals from the church going to (coming from?) a retreat accidentally scratched an SUV of owner of "Inversiones la Moto" (a motorcycle sale and loan place) in Higuey. The guy came out and shot the driver of the truck, killing him and injuring others in the process.

    In both cases we are talking about light scratches which could have been resolved with less than 5 thousand pesos (and today's case most likely less ...)

    So what else is left to say .... Higuey el pueblo de los animales, Dominicana el pais de los salvajes ...

    We are not talking about motoconcho here... a regular person going to get his groceries.

    Well. I lived for 6 month (way too long...) in Higuey. Moto drivers in Higuey behave like a**holes. ALL of them. They cross red lights coming from the right, left, front and behind all of the time thinking they own the road and respecting no rules. 0. AMET does zero to enforce the rules. If this would be the capital they all would be on foot, their motos confiscated.

    I am surprised it happened only twice in the last time...

    Traffic in Higuey, especially the behaviour of the "drivers" there is the worst I experienced ever. Enjoying the traffic in Santo Domingo now which is way better than Higuey and that means a lot...

    Saw a pic on Twitter. Looked like he got shot at least once in the head. Didn't have a chance.
