WTF traffic ???

Damn, reckless behavior in traffic seems to be getting worse by the day. According to the report on Intlxpatr's blog there were more than 50,000 (no extra zeroes, I counted) accidents in Kuwait in 2008. Add to that the number of people driving on the sidewalk to avoid morning rush hour !

Earlier you could get run over by jaywalking or crossing where theres no Zebra crossing. Now morning joggers, people walking their dogs and road cleaning crew all stand the chance of being run over by a mindless moron in a huge SUV who takes the sidewalk as a shortcut. And want to hear the best part ? Officers of the law are happily doing it as well ! And no.. he was not in an emergency to get to a crime scene, he was on a school run. Thanks for being a role model Mr. Officer.

Jonyboy: I wasnt driving at the time. I was stuck in traffic while those guys were making their way in front of the queue.
