Hybrid cars are for the fairer sex
Oh yes! You can call me a male chauvinist or sexist, but it is a fact that females themselves do not dispute! Forget about statistics and touch your heart for the truth within.
Over the weekend, I had to slam on my brakes in the middle of the highway just because some females did just the same to change lanes. What kind of a driver brakes hard to change lanes on a highway flyover? This is regenerative braking at its peak.
Then there was this other woman who drove on the right side of the mini road along Bukit Timah road at 30kmph trying to cut into the left lane to make a left turn 700m away. Noob! For those who do check out their tachometers and mileage gauge, driving slowly actually uses more fuel than driving at a high constant speed – more energy is wasted because the engine is not running at the optimum RPM. This is then, hybrid charging at its best!
I can’t figure how this woman will benefit from a hybrid car, but just to mention that she came out from the slip road along ECP, IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION!
So insurance companies, you should be reviewing the way you calculate premium costs and the Traffic Police should review your system of judging the right from the wrong, rid the world of worthless drivers and more unnecessary pollution.
