Oil is King

Driving in Baku = Madness. In the city there are a few white lines and even a couple of traffic lights, though nobody pays much much attention to them(despite loads of armed cops in new bm's). It appears that there are NO rules apart from do not stop for anyone. The locals are highly skilled drivers as they can judge the size of their vehicle to the nearest mm and predict the 'random' movement of at least 10 other objects (cars, busses, lorries and some brave pedestrians but no bikes) moving about the streets.
