CARRERA SIN SENTIDO

En quince horas fui desafortunado testigo de dos percances que involucraron a motociclistas. Con esta suerte, quienes conduzcan en dos ruedas cuídense de encontrarme en la calle por unos días. Aunque ya tomé providencias y me encerré por el fin de semana, no estaría mal hacer lo propio.

Anoche, un hombre y una mujer tirados en el piso, rodeados de algunos testigos, esperaban la ambulancia cuando a Mariana y a mí la escena nos dejó perplejos, el hambre extraviada. Este mediodía otro duro golpe y de nuevo un motociclista recibía atención médica en la acera.

Las motos, todavía recostadas en el piso, me trajeron de golpe los recuerdos de las tantas veces que se adelantan al paso y en intrépidos movimientos esquivan uno, otro y más automóviles en trayectoria suicida.

Conduciendo de esa forma, en una ciudad que solo por momentos presume amabilidad, las escenas como las que tengo pegadas en los ojos son frecuentes. A veces más trágicas, pero siempre impactantes y costosas.

Por las mañanas, camino al colegio, sufro o me divierto con los padres y madres que, poco prevenidos, flojos o indolentes, salen de casa con el tiempo justo para llegar a las escuelas, pero a las 3 o 4 de la mañana, en avenidas sin tráfico ni agentes viales. Nos ponen en riesgo, a los peatones, a ellos mismos (aunque demuestren poco aprecio por la vida) y con sus apresuradas carreras apenas logran ganar metros y unos cuantos segundos, antes de ser detenidos por el arroyo vehicular.

Cinco minutos tarde, un segundo de distracción, una ojeada más al teléfono y así, en un instante, la vida cambia, y puede ser para siempre.

Canta el divo de Juárez, y con razón: ¡pero qué necesidad!
