    simple lar, just need to find a wall, park infront with backside face the wall, you step the brake, engage reverse gear.. all can check.

    if you don't like to use a wall, next time you go petrol station, just use your back side face the glass door and check lor.

    simple, suddenly brake very hard then if the guy behind hit you, mostly your brake light not working. in any case it is still his fault, and you will get new working brakelights.

    It's wrong to say 'sol-li'. The correct way is 'sor-lee'

    in this dialect, neber need to apologize one.. right or wrong, we say 'knn'. when wrong, we 'knn' something else (blame anything but oneself). when right, we 'knn' the opponent.

    of course the brake light is important, that's why it is a must on every car. If the light is not working, and the rider knock on your car, it is not really his fault coz most driver and riders are to be alerted with the brake light.

    The scenario is likely the brake light isn't working well, and the riders almost hit your car as you stop, go and stop.. then when he talked to you, you keep the window up and give him a dunno sigh, it shows like u refuse to communicate with him, how you can hear him speaking with window up? and when he acknowledge you to wind down the window, and talked to you in hokkien, you just said sorry without trying to understand what is wrong..
    How you feel when you talked to..let's say a maid, who don't really understand your english, but keep saying sorry sir, i know sir.

    The rider may don't speak english, but he is kind enough to let you know what is wrong, without really curse or insult with gestures ha.. it is so normal he frown and tulan.

    Don't be a reckless driver, most ppl think that it is the brake light when you describe the scenario... the important thing is.. have you checked your brake light?
