Never Rent a Scooter While on Vacation in the Tropics

What blows me away about tourists in Nassau, is that they rent scooters to tour the island. They wear bathing suits and flip flops, and tool around the island as if it were a kiddie car ride. They have to drive on the left hand side of the road, which they are unaccustomed too. The traffic density in Nassau is wild.

With all of these factors, I see tourists having a bad day all of the time, when car and scooter collide. When you drive on the left hand side of the road and you are not used to it, you always look the wrong way first.

Here a scooter was nailed at a T intersection on Eastern Road when they pulled out. It tied up traffic for an hour because there is no way to detour.

If you want to have a safe, happy holiday, never rent a scooter while on vacation in the Tropics.
