If you're thinking about taking to the highways of Venezuela any time soon, here's a little tip for you: don't speed. Evidently the country's roads are known for the kind of highway craziness that would make Miami look conservative. While recently driving his own personal motorcade, Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez was harassed by a pickup truck whose driver thought Chavez was going too slow. The driver blew his horn and flashed his lights before passing the president on the shoulder.

According to reports, Chavez proceeded to personally chase down the driver and reprimand him for being such an ass behind the wheel. The whole incident caused el Presidente to address the nation's lawless road system on his weekly broadcast, and to charge the South American nation's police with doing a better job of enforcing the local traffic laws.
