Rules Were Made To Be Broken


Eye Witness Report:

Last night in Bayan, around 9.30 pm at the traffic light on the bridge over the Maghreb Expressway. The sign was clearly marked NO LEFT TURN, and yet this very high ranking female government official casually made a LEFT U-TURN in her white Jaguar, ignoring the traffic rules..... because she can, I suppose.

And a fine example she set for us regular folks too!

Forgive me zaydoun but disobeying traffic signs is regular among a large number of kuwaitis and non kuwaitis from all walks of life (they were brought up this shetsawy)... you need not to be surprized by such behavior...You've become a man's worst nightmare zaydoun "Grumpy old man" lol....just chill dude chill or ulcer would become inevitable:)

  14. jashanmal... Trust me I've broken a few traffic laws myself. Everyone in the world has, and if they say otherwise they're lying.

    But I like to hold government officials to higher standards. Foolish, I know... :-(
