Behold the heat

I finished all the biology paper exams, all three of them, so now that's out of the way- and yet another priority off the list.

On the way back home, I noticed the ridiculous driving on the roads of Kuwait; nothing new.
Then came up the traffic, which started to grow and expectedly led us to a halt in the middle of the freeway. Surely an accident, "allah yaster", and it was. In any other country with law and order superior to anything else, the cars would've stuck to their lanes and show common courtesy with a mix of patience. Sure they got good radio stations in the States, that you can't complain about long drives, and rush hour too much. Yet in Kuwait it has always been off the hook, and people are down right CRAZY, that I'd love to slap each one across the face- 7ada across, criss cross ba3ad.

If people around the world acknowledge a country by it's driving, then Kuwait would be in the slum. Bass allah sitaar.

Imagine, the 3 lane freeway with one shoulder on one side, and the incoming road with it's own shoulder would usually hold 6 cars at once. However granted that were in Kuwait, it only naturally turned to hold up to 10 cars at a time, in only the lanes(including the shoulders). Chaos was the currency of them cars. People driving as if they were the only ones on the whole freeway.

I wouldn't be surprised if the average Kuwaiti, is the kind of person that ever so rarely uses the side mirrors and the middle mirror to check their surroundings, for the safety of others and themselves.

The Kuwaiti police seemed slow to function with the car crash incident. The accident was between to cars. A commercially used van with a Toyota salon car.

Again about the cars, people went over the pavements, even buses and lorries; which if were to occur abroad would be an outrageous act.
Using the shoulders can be extremely senseless. What if the ambulance couldn't get to the site of crash because of the shoulder being hogged by inconsiderate asswipes.

Wallaah fa'9i aktib oo aktib. I could write a novel. This issue is REAL old, 7ada mada. Bass shinsawi.

You revived a couple of thoughts I was suppose to put down.

-Kuwaiti summer heat makes people more prone to get pissed, or mad.
-I do want to swear at people that drive like crap.

And road rage, don't tell me you mean that you get angry at home, or from something then go out and drive like crazy.

That isn't the only definition of road rage. That's why I asked.
