    Thumbs down So many dumb drivers on our road these days !!

    It's getting more frustrating by the day driving on our roads. So many are inconsiderate, and many more that are just plain dumb !! How else to describe them??

    Here is one very inconsiderate driver. BMA6462 is queuing to go straight but blocking the left lane for traffic turning left at the traffic light. OUTRIGHT INCONSIDERATE!!

    http://youtu.be/PxQteIsMZm0

    This next video reflects the kind of dumb drivers we have on our road. Observe....want to turn right but instead of putting on his turn right signal light, he switched on his hazard light !! Where did you learn to drive, idiot !!

    It is drizzling and visibility is poor..

    Without the wiper blades working, poor visibility is a safety hazard to the driver and is risky to other road users.

    Funny, there are still people who dare to post such video and yet condemn other drivers on the road as being inconsiderate, plain dumb, idiot.. !!

    What is wrong with these people nowadays ??

    Reminds me of the Christian saying "let he who has no sin cast the first stone."

    Good one..

    Yup, people can only see others' fault especially now with the onboard camera gadget, HD summore !!

    Although I sat for my driving test more than 30 years ago, I still remembered one of the driving instructions is to use the wiper blades in raining day.

    I also attended other defensive driving courses, none of them tell me to apply rain wax on the windscreen and let the wax do the job in raining day instead of wiper blades.. !!

    Unbelievable...

    I agreed with Patrick, there are a lot of bad drivers, inconsiderate and ill-trained.
    Malaysia is one of the most cowboy place to drive, they don't even know whose right of way is, as long as their car is bigger than yours.When I come back from Australia, I also drive badly at times, just to move forward, that is not to say, we have a good Malaysian system. I can compare because I have 2 licences and I drive frequently in Australia and in Malaysia. There are a lot of needless deaths and injuries in Malaysia and nobody cares as long as it is not them. And when it happened to them, they think it is bad luck. That is dumb.

    You think here is bad?, my observation of car drivers, individuals, commercial at Shenzhen and Guangzhou will probably shock and awe you. I rode in taxi, individual, bus and van there. Its typically macam "bapak punya jalan" and they don't give a blardi hoot whether you some tourist, jaywalker, bicycle or motorcycle..they HORN you to get out of the way. The shuttle bus driver horned all the way from LRT station to airport. Same thing with public bus which I rode to get to places around Guangzhou. Its an experience alright! If your nerve easily break like in Klang Valley, you'd be using your hockey stick and threaten the other party when there. This is their way of driving there...nobody care nor give a damn.
    Of course this doesn't mean Malaysia follow or don't improve at all. I too like to see good behaviour on the road.

    At least you get fair warning from the horns. Over here, they step on the accelerator when they see you trying to cross the road.

    In china, cars horn not because they want to be rude but they want to warn people to be careful bcos i am near you and don't want to hit you.

    that's what my relatives told me and he horns a lot.

    in malaysia, you can't horn bcos there're aggressive, irritable people around.
    horn loudly is different from horn softly.

    People here are more sensitive to some form of aggression.
    Loud or soft horn?..there's only one loudness on the horn..no volume control.. its either a short instantaneous or long horn..which people can misinterpret as rude.
    Look,..WE MALAYSIANS are NOT like the Chinese there with their own kind of attitude, behaviour or culture, although there may be some similarities.. only some.

    Tupai!..ride bike?.. The blardi bus horn and horn you till u move aside to let him pass.. saw some motorcyclists look on their faces and the fear of their own safety on the highway.
    And here we have some idiotic cubchai (with pillion sommore) in the blardi middle of highway thinking itu bapak punya jalan and passing cars must be considerate..If in Shenzhen?.. the bus could run him over...The way the bus driver horn, if its in vocal language, its "GET THE F*** OUT OF MY WAY OR I RUN YOU OVER".

    .
    you might think it's rude but that's not the case in china.

    the horn is developed for a purpose, if you don't use the horn why is it installed in a car?

    a long sounding horn means driver is angry, a short sounding horn means just a gentle warning.

    only oversensitive people can't get accustomed to being horned in malaysia.
    .
    i was short horned back in usa too,bcos i was driving too slowly , so i moved to the slower lane and let them pass. i didn't feel offended.

    Of course. The horn is merely a tool or feature in the car. Then its another story on the use of it, proper or not, along with local motoring culture. Different country, different behaviour.
    Just like a hockey stick, on the field its for a match. In a car, can be for another purpose that wasn't designed for, unless I'm assuming most car owners with one are hockey players.
