5 people drivers would like to thank

Car Advice    Zahara

Driving can be physically and mentally draining, what with the jay-walkers, road-cutters and excruciatingly slow traffic jams. There's always a silver lining behind every dark cloud though, so here are 5 people we would personally like to thank for making driving just a little much better.


1. Gas attendants

When the tank is low and we're rushing off to somewhere, thank the gas attendants for cutting down the time and labour for filling up our tanks. We can't forget the little gesture of making sure our windscreens are clear and smudge-free too of course. For something more than a $2 tip can't do, here's a shoutout to all of you.


2. Drivers who give way

Whenever there's a traffic jam and we're merging lanes, sometimes it's near impossible for anyone to give way to you. We would like to thank those very special drivers who gives way and let us through - no matter how bad the traffic is. Truly blessed to have a few generous drivers on the road.


3. The considerate parker

We're looking at you, the person who goes the extra mile to park perfectly to make sure other drivers have ample space to get out of their vehicles from both sides of the door. The person who opens their door slowly and inch out ever so slightly, so as to not dent the opposite car. You're the best!


4. People who share parking coupons

Absolute angels! These people hold a very special place in our hearts, sharing their unused (or half-used) parking coupons so that other drivers can enjoy even 15 or 10 minutes of free parking. This "buy-it-forward"-like movement is so radical, that no amount of words can truly express our gratitude.


5. Pedestrians who obey the traffic rules

Not forgetting the average road-users, pedestrians. While some of you might ruffle our feathers every now and then, we'd like to thank the few who obey the traffic rules and walk where you're supposed to and make both our trips safer. Here's for the pedestrians we would gladly share the roads with!
