Street view from Izmir
I have told already that traffic in Turkey is dangerous. I have seen cars using reverse many times in busy streets. If driver misses the street where he should have turned he just switches the gear to the reverse and goes backwards until he can take the turn he missed. On Tuesday I was witnessing so far the most dangerous reversing. I was in a bus from Çanakkale to Izmir and on the three line highway bus driver missed the ramp. Professional bus driver decided to use the reverse to go backwards in a highway where cars drive 100 km/h to take the turn he missed. I saw police car passing us but no action was taken by the police. I am surprised how professional bus driver risked 50 people that way.
