That was SOP in Argentina back in them 70s. An Argentinian guy I worked with complained loudly about all of his countrymen were crappy drivers...while he himself was driving in the sidewalk.
I’ve seen that in Philly in the 90’s. Drivers have urgent “bidniss” in the hood, dontcha know.

Travelled to Puerto Rico in the early 2000s for work. Didn't take long to notice most if not all street to sidewalk curb transition was around 2-3 inches. Didn't take long after that to see drivers used the close side of the sidewalk as part of their right hand turn lane at intersections. lol

States are granting drivers licenses to illegals,the banks are writing them loans to buy cars, the feds are giving them cash spending money, and they all have smartphones. So now you have the mental equivalency of chimpanzees and macacques who think they have been reborn in the U.S as Aztecan gods. Add to this toxic mix their hair-trigger tempers. What’s not to like?

Your post jogged a memory from a very long time ago. I was taking Spanish in high school or jr high and the book had a picture of an Argentine cop directing traffic, with the caption, “Police still control traffic at intersections because Argenitine drivers are to0 independent to obey traffic signals”.
