Female driver is bad driver is quite true

My car parked in a big parking lot and still an Indian woman knocked my front door when she parked on the left parking lot. More ridiculous is at least three consecutive vacant lots are available to park her car.

Female drivers driving slowly on a single lane and fast lane is a very common phenomenon on the road, Bung Mokhtar is not a sexist for coming out this comment.

Another type of crazy driver is elderly kampung Malay drivers. I even encountered an old Malay driver driving in the opposite direction on the highway fast lane. I nearly collided with him if I did not quickly switch over to slow lane.

Bung collides with MPs

AN MP’s comment about the irresponsible attitude of female Malaysian drivers caused an uproar in the House.

Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin (BN-Kinabatangan) was accused of being a sexist for claiming that women drivers were slow and paid little attention while on the road.

He said most women drivers were slow and did not pay attention to their surroundings while they were at the wheel.

“Some women drivers drive slowly and seem oblivious to traffic.

“When you honk at them, they get agitated with some even showing hand gestures to other drivers,” he said during the debate on the Supplementary Supply Bill.

Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud (PAS-Kota Raja) then accused Bung Mokhtar of discrimination against female drivers and told him to retract his statement.

Bung Mokhtar replied that she was politicising road safety issues and told her to sit.

Dr Siti’s retort drew support from Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad (PAS-Kuala Selangor) who asked Bung Mokhtar whether his assertion on women drivers was based on authentic surveys.

Bung Mokhtar said he was talking about the careless attitude of drivers and this included female motorists.

“I’m also referring to drivers who just obtained their driving licenses,” he added.

Nancy Shukri (BN-Batang Sadong) defended Bung Mokhtar by saying that he was telling his past experience on the road and his comments were not reflective of all women drivers.

“Kinabatangan is talking about every driver who just got his or her licence,” she added.

Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan (BN-Kota Belud) said Bung Mokhtar’s statement had been misconstrued by the Opposition MPs.

“Women drivers are cautious by nature while on the road, especially when they are driving in the fast lane,” he added.
