Driving smoothly on Pakistani roads is not an easy task, but dealing with a Pakistani driver is even worse! Here are 16 kind of uber annoying drivers you will meet on the roads of Pakistan:
1. The turtle
This one will drive at the speed of 20km/h on the highway… even if it’s empty!
2. Speedy Gonzales
S/he will speed through lanes and traffic like it’s a race against time!! I have sworn never to sit in this person’s car – you know who you are!
3. The DJ
Always has his/her favourite song blasting away
4. The honkers
These guys have no patience whatsoever and honk today like there is no tomorrow! EVERY 5 FREAKING MINUTES!
5. The phone-aholic
Always, always, always on their phone. And insist that they don’t use it that often.
6. The hogger
This guy insists on driving in the middle of the road and just NOT letting you pass. Never gives you way – just no. Never.
7. The so-called parking pro!
Very confident, “this parking-lot is empty – are you kidding me? I could park with my eyes closed!”
And then this,
8. The reverse champion
This one always forgets to look at his/her rear-view mirror. Always.
9. Road rage-r
This person is looking for a fight. With anyone. Random pedestrian – driver in front – driver at the back – driver on the side. Just everyone. S/He’s always angry! #MajorAngerManagementIssues #JustStopAndBreatheMan
10. The constant tail.
This driver insists on driving on the butt of your car. You are so scared you will press the breaks and s/he’ll ram into your that you purposely drive slow so s/he takes over and leaves you alone!
11. The stalker
This person finds it funny to chase your car. It’s super scary – but this guy/girl thinks its hilarious. They’ll follow you all the way home and then leave. Unless you stop at a police station – in which case they’ll SCRAM!
Insists on driving with the high beams on all the time!! They just don’t care that they are blinding the driver in front of them. These guys also do it to make sure no one drives in front of them. Jerks.
13. The starer
This driver will be looking into every car on the road and will NOT concentrate on his/her own driving at all!
14. The rebel
This girl/guy will make sure they break ALL the traffic rules in the book. They will not stop at the red-light, they will not use an indicator, they will not put their headlights on (and if they do they will be high beams), makes a u-turn wherever they want and they will never obey the speed limit!
15. The racing bus driver
This guy stops in the middle of the road, won’t give the indicator, will drive like it is a race against time and NEVER admits his fault.
And then there is you, the enthusiastic rule follower who tries really really REALLY hard not to have road-rage.
