Asses on Wheels

It was terrible weather last evening, when we were heading home.

The weather warning was amply conveyed on the overhead electronic display boards on the E 01 with a request to reduce speed to 60 Kmps because of the slippery road condition and poor visibility.

Did anyone heed to it?

When the police should have been out there in force to show their presence was sadly missing and only time I saw a police vehicle on the road near one of the accident sites.

Other days, when the Sun is out, they play what small kids do (Hide & Seek) but come rain and where they disappear into, I have no clue.

Has anyone been convicted basing on CCTV footage?

The journey that normally takes me to do in 1 hour and 20 minutes took me more than two hours to complete due to weather last night.

But the weather was not the only factor it took so long.

I say it was due to so many “Asses on Wheels” on the E 01 last evening.

I do not mind people being disrespectful to them but I am worried about our personal safety when many do not heed to warnings and trying to flaunt their wealth, stupidity and F#@&*%$ driving skills that may endanger another’s life.

I do not want to be just another statistic, just because of your stupidity and arrogance.

Keep your show-offs to yourself and tries your driving skills on a track specially designed for that and not on public roads please.
