Dreams dashed by impatient driver

Postby admin » Sun Feb 08, 2009 4:19 am

CROSSING the road in Malaysia is a hazard: “Let’s not drive visitors up the wall” (The Star, Feb 3).

Recently, two Chinese nationals migrated to this country to seek a new life but instead, they met with tragedy soon after.

The wife was crossing the road at a traffic light junction. An oncoming car jumped the red light and killed her instantly. The inconsolable husband moaned that they should not have left China.

The driver could be a loving and gentle father to his children and a good husband but it seems that once he gets behind the wheel, he becomes a maniac. He forgets totally that he is breaking all the traffic rules – not stopping at pedestrian crossings, ignoring traffic lights, parking illegally and perhaps, even driving without a licence.

Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong’s mother always told his children to give 100% respect to everyone they meet. Take that 100% respect back if the people they meet don’t deserve it and give them nothing. I follow the same principle when I meet people. And thus when I see these maniacal drivers, I take back my 100% respect for them and give them nothing.
