I mention because of the turn that, as the news articles have put it, bottleneck the flow the traffic. It goes from 10 lanes to 2 to 4 to the crossing. And if most of you don't know how mexicans drive, lanes and waiting turns and respect and courtesy mean nothing to most (that you will encounter in border towns). If the old gate is closed, and one arrives during any kind of rush hour, it will be an infuriating exercise in trying to understand how they can act like no one else exists.

Minute 3 of that video is just a speck of what to expect when there is traffic.
