    One lane from the airport through downtown pass supermarkets to the traffic light. At light at Sun Plaza Mall (Promeande Restauant) if going straight to the high rise section & California lighthouse the road turns into two lanes. Left at traffic light going along the beach road, one lane.

    and i might add that the 2 lane section is a road where some/most do not obey the speed limit and those that speed go really FAST. from (sun plaza to marriott)

    paul and i have been almost run off the road numerous times.

    It's not much of a highway compared to US standards. In a non-controlled access 1 and 2 lane road. Traffic flows from 35 - 60 mph typically.

    you are correct compared to USA standards it is just another road.

    paul and i travel that road at probably 50 mph and lots go ZOOMING by as if we are standing still.

    I own a unit at The Aruban that faces that road. I look at the traffic wizzing at unbeleivable speed. A deadly accident waiting to happen.

    Sounds like Eleuthera, Bahamas. The speed limit is however fast your car will go.
    Thanks...I think I'll let the wife drive while I sip on a Balashi...or two....and pray!

    do not sip the balashi in the vehicle that your wife is driving.
    you and she will both wind up in the slammer.
    and the slammer sets high up overlooking the ocean down near san nick, but have been told there is no air conditioning and no beach visits.
    not the best way to take up aruba residency.
    i am being a wiseguy. a lame a ttempt of being funny

    Andrea..
    You had me believing you there at first. :^) I had to Google!

    "Drinking And Driving Laws In Aruba
    There are no drinking and driving laws in Aruba, but that is by no means any reason to do so, it does in fact become quite scary to drive, so be very careful."

    Quite scary to drive? I better ride in the backseat with a six-pack of Balashi! AND PRAY!!!
