I was just driving home a while ago. Its dark on the road so i have to drive slow. As i was on the way, i drive past vehicles which come from the opposite lane and some dim the lights. Why are some drivers do not dim their lights? I have to slow down because i can't see the road when their lights are bright. Do you resp3ect other drivers by dimming your lights when you drive or just drive and set the lights to bright?

Yes i do that for some time but we have big trucks here in my place so their lights are really bright so i have to slow down to let it pass by then go on my way. There are some drivers who dim the lights when i give them quick flash, i guess they are the ones who forget to dim the lights so they turn it down when i flash mine. But some are really not responding to flashes, i wish they, uhhmm..

I don't own a car but If I have one.. That would be sweet thing to do.. I think that being sensitive with others no matter what you do is a good thing.

Well, if you would buy a car then maybe you are one good courteous road user too. People just don't respect others, the road is not their own, it's for public use so everyone must share and respect others' rights of it.

That's really nice to hear from you.. Yeah.. It is absolutely necessary for us to follow traffic rules. What's the use of the police if we dont follow rules? I think I saw that in one of my favorite korean drama...

Of course I will. This simple gesture may help to prevent unnecessary accidents. Those drivers are just plain selfish and inconsiderate road users. They also pose as a threat to other road users and their lives.

Selfishness it is, they just drive their cars as if they own the road. Let's just pray that they don't get into accidents because of their rudeness on the road. You are right, they are the moving threats on other road users, pedestrians, their lives and their loved ones if they are with their families.
