Woman and Driving

I’m usually not the type of person to generalize but its hard not to feel there something very wrong when my car always gets hit by a woman, specifically muhajabah (Those who wear scarfs on their head), or they try to kill me while I’m on the motorcycle. I honestly don’t think any female has an intent to kill any person while on the road, and oddly enough its always a muhajabah who takes me out or hits me. This time it was the most annoying accident I have ever had, I’m happy it wasn’t a bad one but I was pissed as hell when my car was hit.

I’m in the left lane by the main Mishref Co-op and the right lane isn’t moving because a car is waiting for another car to exit. I’m moving about 5 kph per hour, snails pace and stopping when they stop when I hear I thump and painful metal screech. I moved and heard my car screech from the rear, I got out to find that a woman in a gold Jaguar four door hit my right rear passenger door. I pulled forward away from traffic and told her to stop behind me. I was pissed, very pissed, how in the hell could she hit me, I wasn’t moving and neither was her side. Her front left fender was bent and front left light was broken, while my door and rear right wheel well has a nasty dent. I spoke to her and she automatically said that I was moving too fast and she didn’t see me, I answered saying that I wasn’t moving and the car in front of me wasn’t moving and you hit me in the rear so if we go to the police station you would automatically at fault. She then said she is sorry because she was turning left when she was looking right so she won’t hit the car in front of her so instead she hit me, I tried to calm down because I saw she had a child in the car with her. I asked to speak to her husband and I will sort it out with him, I told her the damage is minimal on both cars please pay attention next time, then I spoke to her husband. I told him what happened and to check on his wife but everything is fine except for the damage, I asked him to come to the police station with me to state that I wasn’t at fault and I wouldn’t want anything from them except the police report as my insurance would cover it. I told her to go home and not to worry about anything, I calmed down but I was still really annoyed, its annoying that she wasn’t paying attention and tried to blame me right away but what calmed me down quickly is seeing the child with her and didn’t want to make the kid upset so I told her to go everything will be fine. Went to the police station three days later with the husband and sorted it out, we had to wait an hour for the accident investigator which is a short time from my experience, he was apologizing and asking to fix the car, I thanked him and said this is more then enough, I’m lucky that he was a good man because I know that being nice and letting the lady go I could have been screwed but I wouldn’t do it any other way. Still its very annoying, why don’t women pay attention, that is what freaks me out the most when driving people who don’t pay attention to the rode.

A guy who is just trying to enjoy life!

    Ain’t that a b**ch? ‘7a6ak isoo.

    I had the same experience on Jawazat Roundabout. I was entering it when this m7ajaba in the roundabout didn’t see me coming. When ur IN a roundabout, u tend to look for drivers coming from your RIGHT, she was looking at her LEFT! WTF?! WHY?! She hit me on my left-side just behind my door. Thank god there wasn’t damage, no dents or anything just her car’s paint left traces on my car which were easily brushed away.
    Since I’m a guy, she “assumed” I was at fault. I just ignored her and drove off.

    What can you do about people who just wouldn’t CARE to learn how to drive? Just ignore them and thank god there wasn’t any major damage that couldn’t be easily fixed.

  5. not to stereotype but you know when you are driving your car on the high way you get to see relative speeds of each lane (slowest on the right fastest) but then you see that one car cruising its way through the road destroying the the fabric of life and morality. this car is usually driven by the following:
    Indian driver (35%)
    old guy barely seeing anything on the road (25%)
    Women (35%)
    and the most deadly of them all :
    women with cellphone in and (5%)

    usually anger management is done by honking my car horn for 15 seconds non stop and give them the (son, i am disappoint) look

  6. Salamat! glad nothing serious happened. I think generally we have horrible drivers in kuwait. Men speed as if they are in a F1 track and women seem to always be distracted.

  7. you see i dont blame the lady in this situation, me i blame the driving test, i mean why is it even there people dont even do it these days its always ee ya 3amy was6a.Seriously even if youve been driving since you were 5 years old you still need to take that not so hard driving test which in my opinion should be harder. I mean for gods sake were just 2.9 million and we have accidents like crazy they really really really should do someting about this !
    but anyways i hope you’re doing ok :)

    u should have kicked the baby and said ” how do you like it when people break your stuff !!! “……then drive off……and before anyone says anything kicking babies is good therapy :p

  10. 7amdila 3ala salamtik! Quite an annoying incident but thankfully everyone was OK after.

  11. Dude, she was busy checking you out and got too close…

    Women drivers!…..
    .. bless them.

  13. meh

    Women and Indians are the worse drivers ever. Fact.

    Women are ignorant of the law and make stupid decisions, which is not a surprise since it’s only natural for a woman to lack in rationality and decision making. The ignorance comes from the Kuwaiti society.

    It’s also a shame that women get more leniency when they also at same time ask for equality.

  14. Maybe I shouldn’t stereotype but since you already did marzouq I take this opportunity to do the same :P I’ve had my share of women driving badly, especially the scarfed and munaqabat women. My theory, is that the scarf acts as a blind on either side of their head. Kinda like horses… Making them only look straight. In order for her to look on either side she would have to twist her entire head. This is very difficult if you’re a woman as multi tasking doesn’t come easy.

    I don’t think we should generalise all women, just some!
