Asians (sic) Drivers

Possibly the most annoying thing about racism is the fact that it is generally full of double standards.

Yeah, we all know that there are some shit Asian drivers on our roads. No doubt. But they aren’t the only ones. 

Our stereotypical minds kick in whenever we see bad drivers. We always need to see the physical appearance of a driver as soon as we spot bad driving. If it’s an Asian, we remember it. If it’s not, we shrug our shoulders, blast them one more time with the horn and speed off, forgetting about which nationality they were.

Asians do tend to have a style of driving, and that seems to generally be a cautious, left-lane, observing the speed limit kind of driving. And I personally hold that kind of driving to be much safer than the speed right up and sit on your tail and then swerve in and out of tight lanes of traffic while running orange and red lights kind of driving.

At the end of the day, people in Australia go for the same driving test. If they’ve passed, then they’ve been observed by a qualified and professional driving instructor to meet the standard of skill required for driving in this country. If you’ve got stereotypical racial qualms beyond this, then maybe you need to take a look at yourself. You’re most likely an impatient speed merchant constantly aiming to wipe 8 seconds of your drive time by taking unnecessary risks. Best of luck.

  1. Llama thinks it would be nice if she wasn’t stereotyped as a bad driver ’cause she’s Asian and Female.
    She like to think she can drive better than the average 1992 Holden/Ford driver on the roads.
    She’s only killed 2 birds and that was during mating season. And she beeped!
    She’s never rammed into a kangaroo or wallaby, lost a demerit point, lost her licence, bumped into another car, crashed, or received a fine.

    She drives on winding country roads and freeways, and often will drive 500kms a week to places such as Newcastle or Sydney from the ‘coast.

    She passed her L’s first go, her P1 first go, her P2 first go and hopes to finish the home run of blacks on full go. She has only ever driven a manual transmission.

    In fact the worst thing she has ever done is reverse into the recycling bin because her dad put it there for fun….

    She hopes that cars full of male drivers will eff off sometimes because they like to jeer, beep and torment her… but then she beats them starting off at a red light 🙂 Bwahahaha.

    She thanks her lovely Irishexpat former rally-car driver for teaching her how to drive carefully, park perfectly and successfully!!

    • Unfortunately Racebook is either deliberately oblivious or incompetent.

      Despite literally thousands of users regularly reporting groups and trolling activities the most users can hope for is the automatically generated boiler-plate e mails and absolutely no transparency about the process at all – unless of course the group in question hits the media.

      Even then groups like the “Fuck Off We’re Full” family and its regrettable relatives re-surface five minutes later. One wonders why a social networking site would wish to insult the majority of their users by continuing to encourage these idiots. I wonder if Facebook’s advertisers know and approve?

  3. Hey @theantibogan,

    Isn’t saying “Asians do tend to have a style of driving, and that seems to generally be a cautious, left-lane, observing the speed limit kind of driving.” just as racist as saying they’re bad drivers?

    In my opinion we should avoid racial stereotypes regardless of if it’s a “good” or “bad” one…

    Great site – keep it up.

  4. I actually think all other drivers are potentially psychopathic homicidal maniacs. That way I keep my distance and avoid accidents. 😉

  5. Of course some “FOB” Asians are going to drive differently – all you need to do is visit KL or Bangkok to see how different the driving style is there.

    I have an asian friend who admits that she drives one way out here, and a different way at home.

    I think if I was put into a car in New York there would be plenty of people complaining about my driving style.

  6. Why do asians like fucken Volvo’s. Because Volvo’s save em in a big hey………? A volvo driving asian is as fucked up as a left wing Australian. bahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

  7. Like my new name, just to remind your female readers of what their cunts smell like………parmesan cheese.

  9. If anybody, has ever tried to drive a car or ride a motor bike,in any asian busy city, it is one of the bravest and gutsiest extreme experiences their are. Having learnt to drive in inner sydney,I thought my self quite capable, I was wrong. Having travelled through a hurricane on a cargo boat, I thought I could never be that unnerved ever again.
    My point being, driving or riding in an asian country is bloody hard. I truely believe most people who drive in Australia drive to fast with blinkers on, wont/dont give way or even let another commuter cross their path, the asian style of driving/riding is courteious,slower,safer, people rely on others useing their indicators and horn so that they dont collide, in Australia it seems the indicator is optional and the horn is only used to abuse people. You tell me which is the better driver!
