Pedestrian Come First….

When I first arrived here, I was suprised on how Japanese drives behave when on the road. If there are pedestrian trying or wanted to cross a road (using zebra crossing with no traffic light available), cars have to give way to pedestrian to cross first. It is a good practice to give way to the elders or the young ones to cross first. Now I feel safe crossing the road here compare to Malaysia where I have to look left and right many times before I can cross a road. I wish Malaysia also can practice this practice to make the roads safer to pedestrian.

    Now u know how barbaric u have been driving in KL – trying to scoop every ladies buttock at road junctions?? Die la. Now only realised what “Road Coutesy” means. This safety mode is common even in US & Europe etc.
