Top Twelve Important Reminders to Drivers from Simon

Some pretty good advice I learnt along the way, for new drivers and old hands, road hoggers and F1-wannabes, for kancil cili padi's to Mugen/Nismo racer boys.



Top Twelve Important Reminders to Drivers from Simon


  • When you hear a loud noise from your engine, turn your radio louder.

  • Pump petrol in the cooler parts of the day, like in the morning or in the evening. Anytime in between, it’s just too hot to get out of your car air-conditioning.

  • Remember, if you collide with a motorbike, it’ll hurt him physically. But it’ll hurt your wallet even more.

  • Always keep your car boot empty, or store your junk in boxes. Don’t dump everything in. When you ever need to change your tyre, taking all the stuff is a pain.

  • When you buy a new car, read the manual immediately. When your car gets older, you’ll never want to read it again.

  • When your car breaks down at the side of the road, put one of the reflective triangles behind your car. If you don’t have one, break off a tree branch and stick it out of your boot. If you drive a bus, use one of the detachable passenger seats.

  • Wash your car every week. If not, it will become temperamental and answer back.

  • When you see a stain of black oil on your porch after you reverse out, it’s a big deal. It’ll take about RM300 not to see it anymore.

  • Keep an umbrella in your car, even if you’re a man guy. You’ll need it the day you drop off your girlfriend for her important job interview. And the office building is 200 meters away across the pedestrian park - in the pouring rain.

  • Drive carefully. Remember, most other drivers are morons.

  • Good advices. I made the BF put an umbrella in the car after having to soak wet one of the days and came back having a high fever. The thing about the triangle reflector, I think most drivers put it too near their car. That thing is supposed to warn drivers to slow down so not to bang your car but they put so near, I think it does not help =P

    Not true lah. If you tilt your head upwards about 30 degrees upwards, it's free! But of course the value of your car will also eventually be free.

  • The advice on having less items in the car boot is practical, TQ!

    The car manual? When car is getting older, the manual will fly away.. we won't be able to find it, gagaga...

    When car breaks down at roadside, it's better to stop the car as far away from the road as you can, we won't know when a DAMN BUS/LORRY can ramp into...

    Not only I put an umbrella, there is even a raincoat inside my car. Sometimes umbrella just does not help much...

    and lastly, i m sometimes a moron on the road :)

  • wildcharm - the best ones are those REALLY big ones than cover 2 people. Then get your bf to walk you there!

    lynnee - mine does. sometimes he pouts and throw tantrums.

    mengz - worse still are those morons who think they are VIPs and turn on hazard lights while DRIVING in the RAIN!!!!

    james - but if i tilt my head up, i'll see the water stain from the roof leak on my porch! that'll cost me more!!!

    keng - i have a pal that keep tons of stuff, including spare clothes, mosquito coil in the boot. One day his tire pancit...
