And, you'd think that with the 40% increase in petrol there should be less people driving!!Things that I have noted are:
- The (supposedly) Emergency Lane on the shoulder of the road, far left, IS NOT NECESSARY AN EMERGENCY LANE FOR SOME...
- Using the signal when turning left or right does not seem to be obligatory - BE WARNED, BE WARNED!!
- Jumping the queue is common in Malaysia, where as in the UK, one lane can have 20 cars queueing while the second land is empty - not a sight in Malaysia! They either can't read signs or are just so impatient (or thick).
- Drivers can be selfless obnoxious morons - very inconsiderate of others.
- The speed limit is not taken seriously by many motorists.
- DO NOT CROSS THE ZEBRA-CROSSING until the road is totally clear or if the cars on BOTH directions have clearly stopped to let you pass. I couldn't believe my eyes when an old man (pedestrian) was almost hit by a car right infront of me! Even the zebra-crossings at the hospitals are not too be relied upon (maybe the motorists think rushing a hit pedestrian on the hospital grounds would be easier!).
- Jay walking is sooo common!
I could sit here and go on all day and night but alas, there are more important things to attend to.
Unfortunately, I have learnt that to survive, you can't be the only one trying to be civil. Bugger!
