I didn't drive for at least, 5 years (as my parking coupons also expire liao, haha!) till recently, I rented a car and I stick to 60km/h or less on minor road, depends on traffic ahead. I always leave a few car length (habit and that's why also kenna cut in by other) I send my mum n my nephew/niece and I saw other over take me. I told my mum, what is the point to drive so fast as I could meet them at next traffic light. True enough, I did and I don't have to brake some time as I could just move on when the light is green.
Another near miss accident when I going straight, a taxi makes a right turn and out of sudden, stop in the middle of the road cause of cyclist "crossing" (never leave their butt from the seat) the road. I manage to brake before the crossing line but if I am at 70km/h, I might hit the taxi (and thanks to those two cyclists). The taxi should make sure no more crossing before turning and my side, if I rush, I will get involve in an accident.
After these 3 days of driving, I feels that local road no longer safe with so many vehicles and every one rush like mad. Safety first, even at Mandai road, clear ahead, I still maintain at 60km/h else TP ask me go back drink kopi, haha!
