  1. This is only 2 reported, I saw one next to HIA early this morning Saturday. I find too many young & reckless drivers out there, what happened? Is the defensive driving course not conducted anymore. I think the laws need to change to make everybody take it again, including myself who have been driving for over 30 years. What is the Transport Ministry saying or doing? Nada

  2. @nooks… brother there is nothing as defensive driving… that’s just a method to make extra money. Defensive driving is in your forecast vision ( a natural talent derives from visual arts). When stepping into or onto a motor you always visualized and evasive reaction if or what if scenario, that means you always on the alert and just not look into other people business like a donkey with a skirt on by the roadside or think your few cc’s you are directing is not a superfast car overnight. Defense driving is where you become 100% alert front/back/sideways and even from above. You can train someone so much but if they are failing themselves to apply that ability then your ass is grass. SIMILAR like our politicians they all have a cabinet of qualifications, look at the state we’re in, that just a typical example.

  3. I disagree with you anonymous on the “just an extra method to make money. ” That’s a baseless comment you made there bruv. I think we agree though that there are just plain idiots at the wheels of motor vehicles..men and women who are not book smart..who are not street smart…who cannot thread a needle, who cannot balance a bottle in the palm of their hands YET they are at the wheel of a 2+ton piece of moving metal!! Vehicles kill wayyyyyy more people than guns yet its so easy to get a vehicle license. Imagine that fact!
