Speeding Kills , so does stupidity .

Entering Salmiya during Eid holidays is a nightmare as you all know it . I was late to work so i was speeding at 15kmph * duh * . Near Al Salam building i found the signal to be green , but strangley though the car ahead of me stopped . Now who da spuck in his sane mind stops in the middle of the traffic light?? So i decieded to overtake him from his right . And then all hell broke lose . This sexy mama with her infant sleeping inside the pram was crossing the road at 0kmph . I pressed breaks and stopped a yard away from her . And she was like ‘ i dare you hit my baby mothaf… ” . And the signal turned red . Now i am not sure if there is a camera at that perticular traffic post . If there is one then i’m screwed big time . But honestly i don’t blame her . Probably Kuwait is the only place in the world which does not like pedestrians . Thats why nowhere in Kuwait ( may be in Salhiya ) there are pedestrian crossings signals ( the walk sign ) . If you are planning to cross the road at any traffic light in Kuwait you are at the mercy of the speeding driver who just wants to make it to the other side even if the signal is red . Pew ! today was a very bad day , i can’t imagine killing a baby and its mother . But then the stupid mama is at bigger fault .. probably she delivered her brains as well , otherwise she wouldnt be crossing the signal while it is still effing green. .

  1. Oh…glad you did not hit her after all!

    I rarely drive…it’s always the IT Guy and he curse and yells everytime crazy people just cross the street like a queen…in an effing green light.

  2. Oh Grey, you’ve struggled with a stroller and the mean streets of Kuwait! You know how hard it is! Thanks be to God you were able to stop; who would want that on their head for the rest of their lives?

    Did you make it to work on time? 😉

  3. Mariposa : Exactly … not only she was walking like a queen , she gave me a mean looks like ” are you blind” ..

    Intlxpat : Nope ! bl##dy parking was took longer than driving from home … holidays you know !

    Jewaira : I agree , but funny though most of the time they stop n fron of the bakery ..

  4. I just realized that there are no walk signs lol!

    Glad you didn’t hit her..

    I walk here all the time.. it’s just too hot in Kuwait otherwise i don’t mind walking.. in winter (in Kuwait) I do walk to jam3iya sometimes..

  5. Thank God nothing happened. I am not 100% sure, but i think in traffic laws the pedestrian i always right. Someone told me once that if someone jumps in front of my car in the middle of a highway and ends up dead, i-the driver-would be to blame??!!

  6. lol @ “she delivered her brains as well”!!

    I guess a lot of us women do that, that’s why hubby’s r always complaining!;)
