Pakistani drivers lack confidence

(via Jalopnik) What is the most important characteristic drivers need? Confidence! At least according to the Pakistan Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa:

How to Drive Safely
Many drivers do not exude confidence when they are behind the wheel by constantly stepping on their breaks. I always maintain my distance from nervous, insecure drivers.

Things You'll Need:
vehicle, confidence


STEP 1: Position yourself comfortably in your vehicle. Adjust the mirrors, seat and temperature.
STEP 2: Press your foot on the gas pedal, and try not to unnecessarily step on your break. If you are stepping on your break too many times, perhaps you should consider maintaining a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. Constantly stepping on your breaks makes you look like an insecure driver.
STEP 3: You should be able to come to a complete stop, if required. There should be sufficient distance between your car and the car in front of you, so that you are not forced to rearend the vehicle.
STEP 4: Drive the speed limit or above.

Tips & Warnings

Don't be afraid of other vehicles around you.
Quit stepping on those breaks for NO REASON!

Please try driving AT LEAST the speed limit. We have places to be; people to see.

Do NOT fear cops. Keep driving the speed limit.

Move away from drivers that are constantly stepping on their breaks. They are insecure. They cause accidents.

I will add that I can see how confidence is needed to drive on Fairy Meadows Road (#3 on this list of the world's most dangerous roads). But yes, stop stepping on those brakes, people have places to go.
