Lima's new mayor battles traffic chaos
Pedestrians in Peru's capital Lima often feel they take their lives into their hands just to cross the road.
The dense traffic is made worse by large numbers of private buses, which compete against each other, minibuses and a quarter of a million taxis for passengers.
The city's new mayor, Susana Villaran, is the latest politician to promise to end the chaos.
