Day 54



Teddy is shocked by Kuwait's level of accidents...



Kuwait ranks 3rd in the world for the number of deaths caused by cars due to road accidents. Statistics show that over 124 accidents take place everyday in this country... 124. Insane, no?


Take a chill pill people and reduce your speed. Could you also stop switching lanes when there's traffic? It really makes things worse for all of us.


Oh... and please SIGNAL. Even if the incompetent people don't get it, just do it for those sane people who know why they exist. 


Thank you.

Thank you Teddy to raise this underestimated society problem..
I hate to go anywhere because of the things you mentioned above..
Some extra explanations to be blamed for Kuwait's advanced Rank internationally in RTA's (Road Traffic Accidents):
* Ministry of Interior/Traffic Department..
Ratio between Vehicles & Drivers to Roads capacity
No new larger roads or even future plans!
Anybody can get Driving License even incompetent people by "Wasta"!!
Police Men are breaking laws daily, so how can they apply it on people? Its Unfair!!
* Teenagers & some Bedouin are misunderstanding the purpose of the car..They have been affected by cartoons & action movies..The car to them is a speed toy & they think they own the road!!
Most insane drivers are undiagnosed patients with psychological problems in which they are attempting suicide subconsciously by indirect speedy way, Poor Patients!!
* Foreigners (Mainly Asian):
Many of them didn't get a chance to ride a Horse-drawn vehicle in their countries.. Imagine what can be happened if the dream comes true!!
Teddy, Your post discussed an irritating issue to me, so, forgive my short comment :P

Teddy driving in Kuwait is one of the dangerous thing to do specially when it comes to respecting the law. No body would care about it since he or she can get someone to help him/her out with canceling any traffic violations.

Everyone should know that we are human with valuable souls, so please at least respect our souls. You have a family and you also afraid of loosing one of them.

@BRUTUS
Singling out asians is a big racist remark. Its actually the other way round. If u read the newspapers everyday, poor asians are the ones getting killed by the psycho drivers that you mentioned. And pls get ur fact right. Almost all the major international car companies are now open in almost each and every single asian country. They r not riding donkeys, as how u r trying to portray
