Watch out the Kancil tailgating behind you.With only 850 cc under his hood this moron thinks his car can out run a Porsche or Ferrari.
Yes, you see it every day on the roads, the ugly side of Malaysians, the maniac turning his machine into a weapon of destruction.
I have come to the conclusion that we may be the worst kind when it come to civic consciousness and courtesy.Malaysians could be one of the worst drivers in the world.The death tolls on our roads speak for itself.For a country with a small population the death to population ratio is too high. Malaysians are more likely to die on the roads than in any other places.It's a shameful tale of stupidity.
In spite of the government effort to bring awareness to Malaysians to drive safely and avoid the risk of getting killed or killing other road users, the situation hasn't changed, the tragedy remains.The widespread apathy among Malaysian drivers are shameful.There seems to be feeling of invincibility among Malaysians when they are behind the wheels of their cars and a feeling that the steel-plated vehicles they are in are indestructible.
The next time you are on the road watch closely how good Malaysian drivers encourage and help bad Malaysian drivers to break the law.Every time there is a long queue many of these bad drivers will jump the queue by overtaking illegally using the road shoulder and more often than not those in the queue would give these morons space to move in.
Not only stupidity rides with the moron in the Kancil, it also rides with the guy in the sleek Mercedes Benz, to him that's road courtesy when he actually helped the moron to break the law.
You see it every day, drivers jumping the queue, making illegal U turn, jumping the red light, speeding, tailgating and other traffic offences and we actually participated in helping them to break the law.
Many years ago while driving to the south of England I encountered a queue on the motorway half way through the journey due to road repair being carried out where one lane had to be closed for repair work, ample signs have been placed at strategic points to warn motorists to switch to the left lane and almost every one complied except for one idiot who decided to take his chance and overtook the long queue using the right lane.The guy must have regretted it for the rest of his life, ten minutes later when I arrived the bottleneck, he was still there, no one has allowed him through.
Here, letting queue jumpers through is seen as road courtesy. Even my wife get profusely mad with me when I consistently refused to let these morons go through.
Certainly, road courtesy is giving your right of way to help others but, certainly, not to help lawbreakers.
Malaysians never seem to learn until it is too late, when they are already dead.The dead may feel no pain but the loved ones left behind are the one that suffered the most.Just imagine how many grieving families are there left behind this Hari Raya.
It is sad that in spite of the government effort to reduce the fatalities, the death toll on our roads continue to climb.
Latest report put the death toll at 79 since Sunday 13thh September.
This is not Malaysia Boleh but Malaysia Bodoh showing its best.
