I'm concerned because drivers and driving conditions are a lot more dangerous nowadays. Young drivers are becoming more and more inconsiderate and accidents are always happening. What are you going to do about it? Driving instructors always have to remind drivers to be more considerate to other motorists and we are warning them even more. We want the Government to promote safe and considerate driving through the media. Why are drivers becoming more dangerous? When I was learning to drive you needed about 30 lessons if you wanted to pass the tests. But people these days are too impatient. A lot of my students complain that driving schools force them to sit in classrooms to study. They just want to get their licence quickly and sometimes have less than 20 lessons. During the test they perform everything correctly but after that it's all forgotten and they start speeding and overtaking in unfavourable conditions. That's when accidents happen. Being a former racer, don't you also like putting your foot down? I like to drive fast, but I always obey the law. I don't own a sports car anyway. As much as I would love a Porsche or Ferrari, there is just no room to go fast in Hong Kong. It's useless to own one. Have driving conditions deteriorated since your learning days? Roads have improved and are bigger and wider compared to 30 years ago. But it's more dangerous now because the roads are congested. There are far too many cars.
