Anyone who has traveled outside the parameter of Ramey has encountered a publico. Barb and I did. Many times. We even relied on them. More often than not it was a treacherous experience.
One morning a publico passed us as we were driving to San Juan. The driver was in a great rush. Soon we caught up to him following a truck. He tried numerous to times to get by. But as you can see by his brakes lights he was a bit short on nerve.
