You know, one of the things that never cease to amaze me is how Malaysian drivers would help each other on the road.
I am not talking about your car breaking down and shizzle like that. If you don’t have AAM, consider yourself well and truly fucked, unless there are some honest-to-goodness Samaritans left in this world who would actually stop and help you with your car troubles. Then you would have to go buy the lottery the next day, because in this day and age, this practice is almost extinct, possibly fearing for their own lives and what-not. I mean, even if you were the recipient of this kindness, you can never know. Didn’t you watch Zodiac?
No sire, I am talking about the unspoken practice of flashing your car’s headlights to inform drivers on the opposite side of the road of speed traps and police road blocks ahead.
It is one of the things that make me go warm and fuzzy inside. It makes me feel very Malaysian, and much love for our fellow countrymen/women. A small thing like that makes me feel more united than any national service could ever hope to achieve.
After all, we are only tolong-menolong bekerjasama mencegah jenayah rasuah. That is a good thing, no?
