    Default When crossing road.

    Do you ever turn your head to the left to back n look out for cars that comes on your right?

    I did it some time, seem like faster than look to right. Maybe i m a weirdo? Heh heh!

    I think I am more sensible... I only look at the direction where the cars are heading from. No point turning my head to the left when the traffic comes from the right.

    Well, that would make sense, but not all drivers make sense. A friend was almost run over by a driver reversing down the wrong lane, while on a zebra crossing.

    agree with edwin..i do look in the opposite direction after crossing the first part just in case vehicles do stunts over the middle portion/kerb

    Sometimes you get knocked over by pedestrians who thinks they own the five foot way or pavement. What's more if you are crossing the road.
    Drivers dun have compound eyes & especially they are enjoying loud music in the car or chatting exitedly on the fone or with passengers. Worst if they just quarrelled with the wife or mistress or galfriend

    Better look all around before crossing the road. Dun take chances
    Take the shot!

    Some pedestrians have a mysterious aura of protection surrounding them, they can jaywalk across the road while fiddling with their phone and expect me to stop for them.

    And when you horn at them, they give you the SMLJ stare.

    Keep horning! Any issue and they try to do a rude comment, scold them the MRT sign "Be responsible, value life"
