The Accident

This morn, while braking at the traffic light
The car abreast was still in flight
But, too late, he changed his mind
And a big bus ate his behind!

  2. I second Naa?

    Man, every day I see stupid drivers of motorcycles and cars and I always think silently in my mind "Stupid man one day this will kill you". Especially the motorcycle riders are reckless, the other day as I was waiting for the bus I watched one pass and thought just that, a second later he crashed right in front of me..Freaky.

  3. Thats why there's something called "braking distance". I'm sick of Ghanaian drivers and their tailgating!

  4. No death or injury, Naa. Just damage to the entire rear of the (Hyundai) car.

  6. Savvy, the bus was not tailgating. He braked through all of, I'd say, 10 metres. But, you see, it was raining this morning, and the street was very, very slippery. Plus the driver of the car braked really suddenly. I admit the bus was also at fault, because the fore end of the bus had crossed the line at the point of impact.

  11. I agree with Naa.
    Ghanaian drivers get kicks from smashing cars.

  12. Nana,
    it seems it's rather the legal to jump traffic than to obey a mere amber light alerting you to halt for a red.

    so they race after you believing you must do the 'legal'. else you either get insults or your behind gets eaten!

    @Naa, i love the way you look at it. keep stretching the imagination! it's nice!

    novisi.

  14. Would you say its generally all drivers, Kiz, who have the Destructive Complex or would you say it is the drivers of big commercial vehicles?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah, Nov. We are always afraid of braking and stopping when and where the law says we must, for fear of somebody eating our behind. What a country.
