Road Safety

Posted By Snow at 4/16/2011
In just these recent days, I've seen multiple accidents on the road. I know I'm a woman, and all that stereotype. But today I think enough is enough, I'm standing my ground. These are two incidents that happened to me last night & this afternoon - that could end badly.


PLEASE STOP DOING THESE
Be Considerate! Be Safe!


#1 Following closely & blinding head lights
Last night ~10 pm

The red car was following me too closely. I was going to make an exit at the junction, but I'm waiting for the blue car to pass by first. But the red car followed so closely, & it blinded me with it's headlights. I was seeing white lights and lost a little judgment to handle that exit! So I honked for it to stop blinding me. Isn't it horrible. As the junction nears, only by Allah's Mercy, I made a safe exit. الحمد لله


#2 Sudden lane changing
This afternoon ~1 pm

It was raining & the roads were slippery. The red car changed lanes without signaling. I swerved. The car went zig zag. Only by Allah's Mercy, I stabilized the car. الحمد لله People. This is how a vehicle jumped over the boundary to the opposite lane and smashed on the opposite car(s). This is how when someone drives very well, but suddenly BAM!!! A car crash landed on him. It's horrible!

I also had another car following me closely like #1. It even honked at me. But I did nothing wrong, my speed is suitable for the traffic. And I don't want to meek myself anymore I honked him back! I feel like I'm in a foreign country where people always honk, I don't want to do that. But you need to know this road is for me as well.

الحمد لله only by Allah SWT Mercy that we're safe
A dua (supplication) before riding a vehicle:
سبحان الذي سخر لنا هذا وما كنا له مقرنين
Glory to Him who has subjected this to us
and we could never have it (by our efforts). [Q43:13]

Yes. I'm a lady driver. & I also took physics, so I know my inertia & momentum. [Speed makes a difference] BTW, ArabNews reported Saudi Arabia has the highest road accident deaths in the world. 17 deaths a day. 1 death for every 1 ½ hour [street terrorism]

Guess what. (◠-◠)v

Well, take it that I'm under Newton's Third Law:
Every action has an equal & opposite reaction
