I will give you some examples which might help you.

1. whenever you are behind a taxi driver, always expect him to suddenly do a lane change, park on the roadside to pick a customer, etc. so KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE from him, and be prepared to brake anytime.

2. Whenever you see ahead that a car is waiting for you to pass so that he/she may enter the road from the service road on your right side, expect they will jump onto the road suddenly, forcing you to a sudden brake. so always expect that in advance... :-)

cheers mate.

see dear Jones10, we cannot change bad drivers attitude. bad driving is a result of a lot of contributing factors like frustration, impatience, attitude, tension, hurry, ignorance, blah blah... and as an individual you and me cannot change this. so, again, as a defensive driver, to avoid getting involved in an accident, my above logic will definitely work and thereby saving your life. Gain, nothing is guaranteed 100%, rest all depends on your fate.

Dear Jones10, do not try to use your smartphone to take pictures of violators while you are driving, since you will be another dangerous driver doing so. take pictures only when you are either parked or waiting in a signal. Now I will give you a simple advise which is the first sentence you are taught during your defensive driving course theory classes- EXPECT EVERYBODY ON ROAD, INCLUDING OTHER CARS & PEDESTRIANS AS STUPIDS, ALWAYS EXPECT THEM TO DO ALL STUPID THINGS ANYTIME, SO YOU WILL BE DEFENSIVE DRIVER. cheers!

Halo Friend

Smartphone users having the Interior Ministry’s Metrash 2 application can now send photos of traffic violators directly to authorities.

Smartphone users could download Matrash 2 by sending a text message typed as M2RE followed by the Qatari Identity card number (QID No.) and QID expiry date (M2RE xxxxxxxxxxx (QID No.) xx/xx/xxx (QID expiry date) to 92992.
