The Billboard Has Spoken

  1. It’s not an anger management issue. If you compare the situation with driving today to 10 years ago, you’ll see a huge difference and I honestly and wholeheartedly believe (and I mean no discrimination in saying this) it is due to the amount of expat drivers. A lot of companies are sponsoring endlessly and some of these people come from rural countries with their equal share of bad driving. We all know how easy it is to get a drivers’ license here. Within less than a week, these people are given liberty to roam around the roads unsupervised.

    They have zero regards to something called “personal space” and this is culturally influenced. As a result, instead of cars lining in a civilized fashion, a 1-lane road is divided into 4 lanes and each car takes it upon itself to to consider racing against the other 3 as a life mission. The problem became WORSE when this exact uncivilized behavior started rubbing on people locally. Now everyone (especially our younger generations) are behaving the same way and if you’re a decent, law abiding driver you won’t survive unless you break the rules too.

    The situation is a mess and it’s getting out of hand. Plus, it doesn’t help that technology has now shrunk people’s focus and attention to the size of a peanut and everyone drives around scatter-brained with their eyes glued to their mobile screens.

    This is not a gender issue. It’s a behavioral issue foremost and a cultural too. Until someone starts enforcing serious laws, fining people, minimizing the amount of people getting permits or elevating the quality of driving admission exams, this problem is not going away. It’s just going to get worse.

    I seriously hope this is a joke and is photo shopped. I have driven in this country for 3 years. I have seen men and women equally text and use cell phones while driving. I have seen women put on makeup while driving. Men reading news papers while driving. Men racing on the highways like it is their personal race track putting all of us at risk. All of this with traffic control police sitting right there doing nothing about it. All nationalities and sexes just changing lanes and drifting as they wish without signaling leading to multiple accidents. Education is key to help solve the driving issue, but will be useless unless the laws that are currently in place, are enforced. Sense of entitlement and lack of knowledge have to change before the roadways will. "ME First" attitude is what I see every day driving in Kuwait. Its rude and its dangerous! Ive been driving 32 years, lived in multiple countries, and I still pray every day when I set out on the roads of Kuwait.

      Agree! Its very sad. I avoid going out if I can help it. I dont enjoy driving here at all and it worries me when the time comes when my kids are old enough and start driving here too. I really hope safety improves on the roads here.

    Avoiding drivers with phones and bimbos with nail polish and lipstick in their hands are mandatory.
