The Reckless Drivers


Photo caption: When to know that a Catholic drives so fast and furious....

Above photo was shared with me through chain e-mails and i believe worth sharing too. On this island, there are two major races that people have generalized to be poor and reckless drivers: Chinese and Koreans. Ok, this didn't come from me. It's just that friends had been in accidents or could've been accidents that involved either Chinese or Korean drivers. When one friend almost got killed when a Chinese woman cut her suddenly, all the woman could say to her was "Sorry, I don't know what I was doing...." Hello, then don't drive, right?

Another friend had a collision with a Korean driver, then the man pretended not to understand English, or maybe he really doesn't speak the language at all....My friend ended up receiving police reports that said both drivers were liable to the accident....

Oh there's more but i'm tired for now.

There's plenty of finger-pointing about driving here. Basically, you've got people who never drove before getting out on the road.

I used to cringe when I saw people practicing on the concrete in Puerto Rico, and where does it say that you watch traffic and don't enter until the car has almost reached you.

OK, I don't want to get ethnic, but we sold a car to a Chinese fellow. He wanted an automatic but the price was right. Being helpful, my wife followed him to DMV. He wanted his money back; the car was no good. He had driven it in first gear at 35 mph and it wasn't acting right.

I've only been hit by a Chamorro male in his twenties. He was high on something. Didn't know that he had been in an accident.

That's what makes it an accident

you're Chinese/Korean claim almost fits the bill but is not inclusive enough...
the joke goes something like this:
"How do you blind an Asian person?"
"Put a windshield in front of them."
