Rome traffic is also intimidating, at best. If you are crossing a street and a car is coming right at you, you'd better not slow down or stop or start back to the curb. The driver has calculated your speed and if you keep walking without faltering, the driver will miss you by a few inches. If you change speed or direction, you're in big trouble.

They don't drive in Rome; they aim!
