suddenly you realise that you're approaching the car in front of you faster than you should be..

cannot overtake...because there are cars overtaking you...so...need to brake...hmm....what a moron...

Well, happen to a colleague. Since you were the on behind and you were alert you manage to avoid him.
My colleague was following another car. The car in front swerve to avoid, but since he was behind he could not avoid in time.... smile_blackeye.gif

Yesterday 6pm+ federal highway near Universiti Hospital interchange.
A small old lorry carrying stuff, decide to turtle 60-70km/h at middle lane. Backlog for nearly 1km. smile_disapprove.gif

Even it's difficult to manage for the person like me who follow all rules of traffic. Even i have seen situation like this. Lastly all depends up on driver that how much careful he is to avoid such things.

Not overload la. It's those 1 tonne lorry, open back with wooden frame.
About year 80's or very early 90's.
Carrying not even quarter load.
Just the driver turtle very slow, maybe save diesel or talking on h/p.
I'm slowing down, braking to get off interchange at left side ... already down to 60km/h ... I still overtake the lorry smile_blackeye.gif

That day I was on highway driving 110kmh on fast lane, was overtaking a bus. The bus was following a lorry in middle lane. The bus was so close like almost going to kiss the lorry's back and as I passed them could see from rear view mirror the bus was flashing the lorry to shift to slow lane..... smile_wink.gif

Was driving up from Johore yesterday and traffic was pretty heavy, couldn't help noticing cars using the emergency lane to overtake. Do this people actually know the rest of the people on the highway is looking at them and saying 'look at that moron'. It's just like some escapee from a mental institute running down the road without their pants shouting "look at me, look at me". Put this thought in your mind and the next time you're caught in a jam just remember it, before you do something foolish!!!!
