Q: What about other road users?
A: There are many bad drivers on our roads – especially VW and taxi drivers.
Most taxi drivers think they own the road. They are always bullying everyone else. They do not care about other road users.
While taxi drivers are bad enough, we also have to deal with people driving under the influence of alcohol – another source of many road accidents, especially on weekends.
Impatient people are always in a hurry because they have a false sense of privilege, and think that the rules don’t apply to them.
