Malaysian Minister said drivers should give way to leaders in traffic

We all know them; the uneducated drivers that manage to bring feelings of frustration among other drivers. We have to include in this category the state officials which are abusing their privileges and try to not obey the rules when it traffic every single day. We managed to obtain the statement from one of these officials regarding regular drivers on the street of the city. The person we have in mind is Domestic trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism Datuk Hassan Malek of Malaysia who thinks that drivers should give way to VIPs and patrols escorting royalties just to show them respect by understanding that they are the leaders of the country. The explications comes a bit later: the officials do not have to waste time in traffic as they need to get to their destination and perform the official duty they have been preparing for and which is the reason for them being in the city. For the moment, drivers in Malaysia only have to stop or just make room for emergency services, but this is not enough, according to the Minister. We are sure that you agree when we say that the traffic condition is like this for a reason at that is because the officials who ask for respect in traffic are the first ones involved in the fact that there are a lot of problems and too many cars on very small roads. Other countries than Malaysia have decided to use the police cars less for escorts and just when high security things take place. The report presenting these statements offers the US as an example. The Prim Minister here travels in his armored official car with no escorts. He obeys the rules of traffic just like everybody else, which is something they should take as an example. The man even reduced the funds for public spending by limiting the use of governmental vehicles. This means that even officials are being encouraged to use public transportation. Minister David Cameron is a wise leader from this point of view.
