I came across this content from an article I picked up from the nearby library and decided to share it with you all. Written by local author, David Leo, this got something to do with two types of drivers. And I find it really catchy, in my own point of view =D


Some people seem to think that there are only two broad categories of drivers on our roads. The speedster and the road hog.

Portrait of a speedster: Impatient, pretentious, grumbles often, swears easily and prone to violence. He suffers from the illusion that he is king of the road. Nickname: Road Bully. Likely quote from him: “The road so wide and yet you anyhow drive. If you can’t drive, sell your car and take MRT.”

Portrait of a road hog: Naturally slow, nervous, timid and a pessimist. He suffers from claustrophobia (even out in the open road) and the illusion that the road is always too narrow for too many cars. Nickname: Slow Coach. Likely quote from him: “Please don’t make me kan cheong, or I will surely bang the tree!” (Kan Cheong is nervous in Cantonese)

Interesting concept, I must add. Seemingly obvious, that once you had pass your driving test, the nervous will still be inside you once you had taken your first ride on the real road. (Feel that hot seat?) That’s where, frequently practice comes in, in order to get used to it.

And that doesn’t mean you have to be a racer once you get used to it! Accident may prone to happened if safety is not compromised within one self judgement. It’s a serious message though; “Drive with care and caution.”

And I’m NOT here to offend F1 Racers!!

  1. I think I’ll most likely to be a speedster. Complain,complain and complain. Or maybe I’ll give the excuse of a road hog when being charged. LOL!
