Kuwaiti Traffic solutions ! (27/9/2004 @ 4:48 PM)
Yesterday while I was out there was a traffic jam because of an accident ! Traffic stops every where in the world because of accidents.. The thing that is amazing here is the Kuwaiti way of dealing with it (assuming all 20 or more cars passed by and dealt with the situation in a very impolite way were driven by Kuwaiti people!) the car in the red square had a driver ( like the other 20 or so who were before him/her & after him/her) that thought he/she is above the traffic jam & law too ! So simply he/she can use the safety lane to jump off other people & be ahead of them .. WHY !!??
This is one of the things Kuwaiti people should change, & yeah one more thing please DO NOT let any one crossover you even if you can spare the space UNLESS they are polite enough to signal, :} because I like being "n7esa" with the people who don't use their car's yellow light to signal.
Also there is a thing I wonder about, in the end of the traffic jam there was ONLY an ambulance with a person on the floor & I found out that ALL this traffic is not from the accident it self (cars have been removed to the safe lane on the road) its from the cars passing by & the drivers STOP to watch the man on the floor !! Its the act of "6masha" as Kuwaitis say! I hate that too & wonder what is the pleasure in watching a person beside a spot of blood ?!
Will they go like
Person A : Hey I saw a nice thing on the road
person B : Wallah !!! Wein?? eshlon??
Do u thing he/she will say a new GREEN space
Person A : A dead guy !
How would that be close to be watched/told ?
