    You are in the middle lane, and the car in front of you is hogging the road. Do you*:*keep in mind that Malaysians drive on the left side of the road, in case you are not familiar with our road rules but are planning to visit this country that has wonderful people but mad drivers.

      Keep calm and slow down to match the speed of the car in front.

    • B. 

      Collect them all until JPJ or the various municipal councils which issued the summons run a “Pay your Summons!” campaign, offering discounts on unpaid summonses.

    • C. 

      Ignore them all because there are no repercussions…until you need to renew your driving license.

  • 6.

    • A. 

      Use your turn signal light and proceed to slide into the next lane.

      Look again, because there might be a motorbike white-lining in your blind spot. Using the turn signal light is optional.

      Wait until you are near the toll and then cut across lanes sharply because you like to keep other drivers on their toes.

      Go to any lane that you so desire, and then realise that you don’t have enough cash, forgotten to reload your Touch n’ Go or don’t own a SmartTAG in the first place.

      Can't slow down in time and crash into the rear of the invading vehicle.

    • C. 

      Apply the brakes before the car had started to swerve because you had a sixth sense about it. All is well.
