|Bento No. 119|
I was horrified when I realised my boy opened car door in the middle of the motorway while I was driving back home from school. Immediately, I stopped the car on the road shoulder and jumped out to close it. I was really mad and kept reprimanding him. At the same time, I wanted him to understand the seriousness of making sure the doors are to be closed at all times and dangerous as well if the doors are left opened. The last time, I did an emergency stop at the road shoulder was having a punctured tire. Afterwhich, I read from the newspaper that there was an accident whereby a lorry crashed right into the faulty car which was about to tow away. One casualty in this freak accident! We always assume it is alright to stop on the road shoulder but forgetting that it is 'unsafe' too.
