I've wanted to write about I've held off writing until I got in a car accident...
not if...when..not if...it was a matter of inevitability...
Korean drivers are nuts.
This car has the highest rate of pedestrians being hit by cars of any developed county.
I've seen a bus pull an impromptu U-turn in the middle of a main road. Been in a taxi that ran 6 red lights in a row. The buses run them too...but they stop...look both ways...then run the light. (and no that is not legal in this country either.)
If you're driving along and you don't like the was the bus is driving... go ahead and cut off the bus (on the 4 lane highway no less) and get out and rip the bus driver a new one.
Well...my accident was a bus on bus fender bender...nothing serious...and no injuries. But still, it's an experience I've seen coming ever since I arrived here.
