Bad driving habit of Sabahan

Wuhuuuuuuuuuu.... I pass my driving test on Friday with 48/50 mark, almost perfect. Hehehehehe.... All the nervous is gone now. Will be attending a 6 hours workshop on Tuesday. Don't asked me what is the workshop is all about but my sister said they will teach you something about car. I just need to sit there and listen for 6 hours. Adooooi! It is a very long sit and listen thing. Wish I will not be sleepy on that day. On my last Driver Education Course, I write about some of a bad driving habit in Sabah. I am just writing this to share to anyone who will be driving to Sabah in the near future. I am not an expert but I think most Sabahan driver have this kind of problem in them.

Here is a list that I write about "bad driving habit of Sabahan":
  1. Driver in Sabah like to be in the right lane even if they drive at 50 km / h. It will be useless for you to horn or mad at them since many driver doing the same thing in Sabah road. The best thing to do is overtake them. I been to Peninsular Malaysia before and see that people over there will be tailgating driver who is slow on the right lane. In Sabah, you might instantly ram into them since tailgating is a bit rare over here.
  2. Sabah driver also don't like to use the light signals when they want to change lane. You need to be extra careful and watch the car in front of you all the time. Especially when there is traffic light or roundabout in front.
  3. Although there were no vehicles on the roundabout, most vehicles will automatically stopped. Car that coming from the roundabout route, might be changing lane without giving any signals. There will be a massive jam after office hours near the roundabout. I will try to avoid roundabout during this time.
  4. During the night, many drivers will use their high beam light. If you cannot get used to it, please make sure you bring your black spectacles. Hehehehehe....
  5. Some Sabah driver don't like other vehicle cut their lane even though they were driving at a speed of 50 km / h. When they overtake you, please be patient and don't taunting back at them. Some of them might called their friends and attack you.
  6. You can see many people join the circus in Sabah roads. Hahahahaha.... Small car like kancil can accommodate up to 6 adults. Just don't get shock on what you will see. Hehehehe....
  7.  If you're driving in a town in Sabah (especially Kota Kinabalu), please don't speed. Pedestrian might suddenly cross the road even if the traffic light is green.

I think thats all for today. If any of you might want to add, please do. I do believe many of you a more experience driver then me. Hehehehehe....

Chayo-chayo....

Congratulations for passing the driving test!!! Wah, it's good to know ada lagi course workshop..we don't have it here. I think that's really a brilliant idea to teach new drivers especially for girls.
Hehehe, Sabahan drivers agak sentimental kan driving. When I was in KL...adeh takutnya! drivers di sana dahsyat2..hehehe.

Good luck on the next course ^-^

Jayce-o Design said...

congratz for your achievement and beware of those bad drivers .They may have some luck avoiding the police, but they won't be able to avoid that onlooker or local resident looking out of their window taking down the vehicle's details with the intention of reporting it to 'Dob-a-Driver'.

I think most of the bad habit also happen here in Semenanjung..but I think drivers in KL are more annoying..

Zezebel said...

Didzy : hehe, thank you. Sabah kekurangan lorong and banyak yang menyalahgunakan lorong. Kat KL tu lebuhraya, halaju 110km/h ba...mesti la menakutkan..huhu

Zezebel said...

CT : Haha belum dapat lesen lagi. Lesen L pun belum ada ni.

Zezebel said...

Terima kasih en_me, :D

mankuchai said...

Sama sahaja di K.L ni pun pemandu lagi extreme,sebab disini semua orang nak pantas...cuma satu jer kalau pandu perlahan jgn disebelah lane kanan yer(k.l)...nanti orang marah :(

eiman said...

tahniah.. jgn lakukan bad habit tu pada diri anda yer..

Zikri Husaini said...

not only at sabahan.. at semenanjung more bad.. huhu..

Sir Marcello said...

totally agree!!!
the reason why almost drivers like to used their high beam maybe of geographical factor..but in town?

Zezebel said...

Jayce-o Design : Thank you. I don't know about them, but for people like me that had been involved in road accident, they will surely know that every rule that been set is for our own safety.

Zezebel said...

mankuchai : Rasa nak marah je kan bila kereta lane kiri lebih laju dari lane kanan..hahaha

Zezebel said...

eiman : Terima kasih. :)

Zezebel said...

Zikri : Kat mana-mana pun sama je situasi kot..huhu, ingatkan Sabah je teruk..

Zezebel said...

Sir Marcello : So annoying, right?

Zezebel said...

khairolghani : haha, and the winner for the bad driver is....KL...

Admin said...

anN said...

Zezebel said...

Donny @ Admin : haha, kenapa nama kau gitu?
KM ada KFC ja, tempat lain semua ada..huhu tapi nanti saya try la a, sementara masih ada di sini..hehe

Zezebel said...

Ana : Neh.. I know a Kancil yang laju tak ingat dunia..huhu. Mana ada right atau left lane juga kalau sini hehe

anN said...

Nur'Amilah said...

Nice post :D

etomyam said...

seriously susah betul nak ubah sikap pemandu yg sukan memandu di right lane ni... kekadang di negeri saya pun ada jugak kes camtu...

Uncle Lee said...

He Zezebal, congratulations! Well done! But do be carful out there.
As you have already mentioned, lots of bad drivers out there.
Even here too. We get 250,000 new immigrants every year, so you can imagine those driving on right side come, its driving on the left.....

Just stay easy and that worksop is very good. Pay attention as card can break down, at least you have a rough idea, as well not easy for mechanics to tipu you if you know something.
Have a nice day, Lee.

Dempsey Sanders said...

Zezebel said...

mancai : Hehe, sudah semestinya..

Sumandak Kinabalu said...

Saya paling pantang yang tiba-tiba memotong, signal apa pun tiada. Pandai marah lagi tu kalau kena hon...Yang paling teruk, tukar laluan secara mengejut. Sudah dia masuk tu barisan baru pasang signal, apa kes??

Mama Murai said...

z actually i already have an experience as you write, you do have read my previous articles rite? totally most of which you write is correct but it was occurred in your neighboring state.. Hehe~ so what i can learn from my journey? Be patient at the all time, especially when you're not really familiar with that place
