This got to be the news of the month.. an 80-year-old man driving on the wrong side on the road at North-South Expressway (NSE) at 60kmph, and the best part is, no ones get killed for that. YaY another Guiness Record..
PLUS officials finally blocked the Ah Pek’s car after he drove at the fast lane albeit wrong sided for 30km. Some classic conversation between the officials and Ah Pek..
“I asked him why he drove in such a manner and he replied that it was his right of way since he was driving on the left lane.”
The official said that Ah Pee believed that he had not endangered himself or other motorists.
“He expressed surprise at the number of cars on the road these days.
“He even complained that most of them were flashing their headlights at him for no reason,” he said.
“We decided that it was a genuine mistake on his part as he had never used the NSE before and escorted him back to his house in Bagan Samak.”
One of the officials drove Ah Pee’s car with the other in tow and he arrived home before 3pm.
“I told him to ask for a lift from his children the next time he went for a drive,” the official added.
I can’t imagine what will be my response if I see someone driving like that.. I think I will ask for an autograph.
