Malaysian Drivers - What Are We Thinking????!!!!

(On a 80cc bike....you gotta be kidding me mate!!!!! Leave the wheelies to the Superbikes! )
(Small car hits big car coz of reckless driving - small car = Kancil, big car - Harrier. Do the math!)
(Creating his own lane just coz he drives a tank)
How many of you have been behind the wheel and cursed at the car in front of you? How many of you felt like running over those bikes that keep screaming through in between our cars making it hard to even switch lanes? How many times you felt like stopping the car, taking that baseball bat (or hockey stick) and pouncing on that car behind you that keeps tail-gating you? How many just wanted to run over pedestrians? How many just wanted to scream in your car coz the cause of the traffic that you were sitting in for 3 hours was because there was accident on the other side of the road?
If you answered Yes to ANY of the above, it proves how frustrating our lives are getting on the road? Firstly, I blame the government. Yes we are trying to potray to the world that Malaysia is a progressing 3rd world country (accept it mates - we are a 3rd world country) and so the need for afforable lifestyle. Do you really think by creating cars that go 40km/h on the highway as top speed helping in any way? Do you think by creating smaller and smaller cars is going to help take people off their bikes and into a car just because its afforable? Bullshit mate!!! Have you ever been to America and seen a car the size of our Kancil? Of course not because these cars are classified as DEATH TRAPS! Even the guy in the motoring show used our Kancil and Kelisa as a crash test to check safety level - guess what happened there.....let me just put it this way, the roads had more bumps on it compared to the flatten Malaysian pride on wheels.
Creating cheaper cars is not the answer. Fix the bus system! Fix the train system! Fix the cabs! Heck - fix the entire public transportation in Malaysia. That's the answer. If everyone stops taking money for their own personal need and stop being selfish, then maybe our country will be in a much better state.
I don't blame thiefs coz they don't steal because they think its cool - they do it coz they dont have a choice. What would you do if you have hungry mouths to feed and you cant get a job? You'll figure something out....and figure that out FAST! But thats an entirely new topic of discussion.
Now, its not that I hate the small cars....i really dont. I dont drive a fancy car myself but its a sedan coz I like the space. What I hate is that these people in the smaller cars - Kancil, Kelisa, Kenari, Myvy, Savyy, etc - they think that their car is invinsible and the way they drive is like putting Lewis Hamilton behind the wheel of a Kancil with F1 technology. Mates - these cars are not fast. Neither are they safe for that matter. Weaving in and out of traffic isn't advisable. What drives me crazy is that when they drive past us, they scare at us as though its our fault for driving a bigger car and taking up so much space - NEWS FLASH!!!! Roads were built for sedan mate. The smaller cars are like the youngest child in a family - AN ACCIDENT! Having said that, I'm the youngest....mmmm...gotto have a word with my parents on this.
My aim in life is to be able to afford a Hummer some day and run over these small cars and bikes. Dreams do come true sometime mates.
