Haiti Dirt Road Dangers - At Risk Of Flipping Over

Boc Banic Haiti - One Wrong move and the big Ford Explorer would flip over, that's how dangerous this Haiti dirt road is. Half of the road is now a freakin cliff. If you are not from around there, you are as good as dead!

Believe it or not, this is a commercial road from Thomassique, through Boc Banic, to the Dominican Republic where Millions of dollars of merchandise enter country each year.

We all had to get out of the car for safety reasons...

The big truck in the picture got stuck there for some reason... Probably couldn't go up the hill due the mud slide after a rainy day...

My car went first... we made it through but there is a BIG FAT scratch on it now...

The Ford Explorer is wider. So we had one person pull the big metal gate hanging out the back of the truck, and two co-pilots: one in the front and one in the back. all of them helping the driver so he could barely avoid ramming into the side the truck and also not fall down in the pit to the right.

Let me tell you... When they call Haiti the Republic of Port-au-Prince, they are not kidding...

Our leaders are busy fighting over crap to consolidate their powers, in the mean time, little people like me are in danger just driving down the road...

I really want to talk to you about the good side of Haiti; however, if I don't show you pictures like these so you and our beloved leaders of the republic can be aware of the condition of the perilous roads in Countryside Haiti, who will???

An tou ka... This is the bad side... Take notice, Mr and Mrs 'Gouvennman' take some action and let's move on...

Pa gen tan pou pedi... Haiti is open for business... Right?

first I want to thank you Wood for doing a great job at touring the country and keeping us posted.

Yes the government is doing a good job also at painting a better picture of Haiti and we who love Haiti near and far are excited at this new way for my beloved Haiti.

Better roads are a must for Haiti.
