Yellow peril.

What kind of motorist mentality are we having on the streets of Bahrain? Formula 1 fever is still months away and yet, some drivers cannot control their adrenalin rush behind their sports cars.

I was driving towards a certain junction in Adliya and I could see from afar that the signal was green. As I approached the junction, the signal turned yellow. So, I hit the brakes to slow down and eventually stopped as the signal turned red.

However, as I slowed down, a Mr Good Driver of a Black Chevrolet Camarro behind me started honking non-stop - as if urging me to speed up and beat the red light!

As we both stopped at the junction, I could see in my rear view mirror his hand gestures. I could see how frustrated he was with my driving and I'm pretty sure he was cursing me at that time.

I am so sorry for disrupting your adrenalin, Mr Good Driver. But, yellow signal means the vehicle has to slow down. Unless you are colour blind, I can understand your frustration. My sincere apologies to you.

Sir, I hope you learn some traffic manners and obey the rules for the benefit of all and not just yourself.
