    Malta Driving

    Post  jojjemannen on Tue Feb 02, 2010 1:27 pm

    A tourist that was here on Malta was really surprised about the chaotic traffic so he asks the hotel owner why.

    The owner answer:
    - In some countries they drive to the right, in others they drive to the left.. but here on Malta we drive in the shadow..

    As my SSM brothers who travelled to Sicily last December can confirm...Italians/Sicilians drive much much much worse then we Maltese. At one point we were all fearing for our lives travelling back to the airport....and it is no exagerration...

    I agree with the dottore 100%, the way back to the airport was a nightmare, part of it done in wrong way, near crashes lost count, and when i say near, it was by a couple of cms, closer than that means bum.

    This was Catania, already famous for it's drivers, personally I saw the same [if not worst] in Rome and worst more Naples, but heard the 'best' of the worst are in Libya. But that is another sad story ... so do not blame only Mlatese you Nordic Viking Twisted Evil

    it's a statement of fact.. I don't blame anyone.. But I can see that here on Malta there are more cars with small damages then I have ever seen before. But I suspect that the Maltese drivers looks at the women rather than having there eyes on the road!

    Instead of drivers looking at women, could it be that most of the cars you saw with small damages were driven by women Question Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

    One of the most idiotic scene I encountered was a driver trying to reverse back in a roundabout juction of a busy major artery in rush hour, most likely because its was not the intended road, where less than half a KM down the road, there is another roundabout so it is safer and easier turn down there and go back up. You can imagine the choas this driver caused, who by the way accidentaly Suspect happened to be a woman Evil or Very Mad
