Can anyone tell me of a country we ESL teachers can live in where they don’t drive like the Chinese? I know that’s a tall order and many countries are just as bad or (I can hardly believe so) worse than China in this respect. I can vouch that Indonesia and Saudi Arabia are no better, and that even in Japan a driver will honk at a pedestrian on a narrow muddy road, as if the walker ought to step into the mud to let him pass. Nevertheless, I am asking in all seriousness. Is there a country where the drivers are not so totally oblivious to the people around them and even their own driving safety? I was thinking the Vietnamese are nice, intelligent folk, but I can guess that driving conditions are like the rest of Southeast Asia. I discount Singapore because there is no ESL work there. Please. I need to know.

Yap Island! Just a few hundred cars here, seeing five on the road at the same time is "rush hour" & the general speed limit is 20 mph. The only beeps you hear are drivers saying hi.

Mexico!
The road surfaces are so bad that no one can ever get going faster than 40 KM an hour in an urban area but usually is much slower like 20KM per hour so walking if faster than driving and can usually walk between cars at peak traffic times with no risk to your person.
