Radar detector
Today I learned the sign language matatus use to communicate police presence along the road.

  • Two fingers: Two police
  • Hand held thumb up, as if to shake hands: Barrier ahead
  • Fingers partially curled, palm pushes outward: Highway patrol
  • Palm down, patting the air: All clear, feel free to drive over-capacity and over the speed limit
