Unfortunately there is a big assumption among drivers in this country that speeding or crossing lines between cars is a cool thing or only skilled driver can do that. Also there is another assumption that if you follow rules and try to drive safe you will end up having lots of troubles in roads. So you better eat them before they eat you.
I just hate it when I see one of the coaster buses crossing the road in a crazy way. I had enough of taxi drivers stopping in the middle of the road to pick up a passenger. I really really hate it when a quick delivery van speeding in a tiny road. While you read on the back of the van “How do you see my driving?” well… it’s like shit.
People should understand that this kind of driving is not cool, smart or better in anyway. A cool driver is the one who cools his speed down. A smart driver is the one who follows the rules. A professional “skilled” driver is the one who keep all his senses alert while driving.
Now… to the confession part, I am not a perfect driver. I speed sometime. I do stupid stuff while driving and when I get pissed off I might do dangerous things… I feel so bad and ashamed about it. Especially when I jeopardize the life of the people who are sitting next to me and I feel so bad that I scared the shit out of them.
But from once and a while I always keep reminding my self that I need to be a good driver and try to drive safe. I believe that it’s part of our religious beliefs and ethics. Its also part of the civilized people lifestyle and I really would like to be considered as a civilized person.
Safe driving is cool… Save driving is smart
Be cool… be smart… be happy
