Guatemalan Pedestrian Bridges

IMG_20150629_094602
Pedestrian bridges are ubiquitous here in Guatemala City and its suburbs.

There are no proper crosswalks and speed limits are rarely enforced, so Guatemalans came up with this ‘solution’ to protect pedestrians.
Run overs still very common because a lot of people refuse to use these bridges. A common sight here in Guatemala is to see people crossing a very busy street or highway and not using the bridge above them.
