There Is Still Hope In Malaysian Drivers!

As we know, drivers in Malaysia are famous for their not so good attitude on the road for example using emergency lane when all the lanes are busy, not giving way if a car gives it's signal to turn, cut queue when it is too long, giving all kind of body languages when somebody does something wrong and when they think that they are right and many more ways that you cannot imagine. You can hear so many public service announcements on the radio and on TV telling the public that their character changes when they enter a car and I think it's true.

In my opinion, the attitude of drivers in Malaysia could change from bad to good. Why? Recently, I drove in Kuala Lumpur(KL) and I got lost in there for quite some time. I had to do many extreme turns from one side of the road to another side because I had to refer to the sign boards when I was driving and I had to do last minute lane switching. haha! By the way, I saw an Aston Martin DB9 which had a cool license plate number too-DB9. Woah, what a cool car......A second hand Aston Martin costs about 1.3million......what would a new one costs?..... Anyway, back to my story, I was signaling from one side of the road to the other and some of them gave way. I was quite shock. The ones who gave way were young people and the people who were very offensive were mostly old uncles. What does this show us? hahaha.

Another situation was when I was driving a little fast in Ipoh.......then suddenly I noticed a Mercedes-Benz highlighted me a few times......I wondered what was wrong......After checking my car, I thought it was just false alarm.......but again another car highlighted me.......I knew something was wrong so I check again........still there wasn't any problem with my car. After about 45 seconds of straight road driving, I saw that there were quite a number of cars in front, I slowed down......it was a traffic block, they were finding for something suspicious or somebody maybe. Then I knew that the highlights given by the cars were to warn me about this and all the cars behind me. I was impress of how caring they were, Wah!


























Basically, base on some experiences that I went through, young drivers have the capabilities to be a better driver then now.....I am not stereotyping but it is a fact. Some words for the drivers out there, please do not listen to older people or friends who says "don't give way to that car, give that car way and then everybody also want!".......we should change and GIVE WAY TO OTHER DRIVERS AND PEDESTRIANS OUT THERE and they may do it too. Driving would be much nicer if the mentality of the drivers in Malaysia changes!
