Well dang, I don't have a post rating for those kinds of posts.
Personally, whenever I find myself complaining about people driving like crazy, without or with misleading lights (red head light / white tail light anyone?), I remind myself that this all is the way it is because of a lack of rules or, where there are rules, lack of enforcement.
Which, on the other hand, is one of the things I enjoy here
Very good point. The UK is now a police state and not pleasant to live in; soon farting will be illegal.
That's pretty funny and also applies to my current country of residence, Colombia.
Looking forward to spending some time in Dumaguete in the near future.
I'm one of those retired, so I can and do adjust my time to avoid rush hours. Motorbike, no car. I actually like driving here vs. USA. Here, you can putt along at 30 - 45km in and around the city and the faster crazy types just buzz around you; no road rage directed towards you. In the USA, if you're not cruising at well beyond hwy speed limits, say 140km/hr, you become the *sshole in their way.
Just give the guy extra room and have a passenger get a video, so if he wipes out you got a great one to upload on youtube
I get fairly annoyed when people are camping out in the passing lane. Pass then get back in the right lane. Nothing worse than open highway and somebody is in the left lane for no reason. I rage on that one pretty hard too.
I don't get as annoyed in the Philippines because I don't expect drivers to know (or care about) the rules of the road. The US on the other hand....people know better.
Anyone at all can get a Philippine drivers lic.
So darn true. I've always said, be careful what you wish for.
I hate to think what it would be like here if they started pumping out more rules and regulations. That's what ruined my country.
