The Bigger or Smaller, The More Egotistical

Driving on Malaysia roads can be stressful. But in passing the time especially during traffic congestions, I’ve observed a weird finding based on the vehicles being driven on our roads.

The smaller or bigger the vehicle, the more egotistical the drivers are in those vehicles. I’d like to call upon evidence 2-010-A.

In particular, the kapchai models. They’re affordable, agile and averagely speedy. Because of these characteristics, some riders think they’re the king of the road.

From hogging the lane, squeezing through and hitting your side mirrors to beating the light. Just because  the oncoming car isn’t very near, they want to be Evel Knievel for a few minutes. Some even do it when the oncoming traffic light had just turned green.

Next, I’d like to call on evidence 2-010-B.

They’re definitely “munsters” on the road. I’ve rarely seen any respecting bus drivers on the road. If there were, I can count only a handful, 1 hand. The egotistical ones choose to stop nearly anywhere along the road, like taxis!

The buses I’ve seen especially worrisome are express buses. While driving behind them, they’re on the roads at 100-120km/h. Why in the world are there 80-90km/h stickers then! And they maneuver like they’re driving, taxis!

Final evidence I’d like to call on is 2-010-C.

They are the creme de la creme. Just because they’ve brute strength and size, they’ve every right to stare at you and blame you for not giving them way! But I find the worst ones, are the ones which park anywhere. Even if it meant blocking the road.

Has the jury made a decision?

Is the smallest vehicle or the largest vehicle, the most egotistical? :P
