Autojam is almost natural pattern for the Russian roads. A kind and decent man, and managed to earn a car — and behind the wheel behaves like a savage. Try to understand what the cause of this strange phenomenon.
You like to travel by car abroad? I like it. First of all, for the simple reason that there is a violation of traffic rules is something out of the ordinary. Well, things don’t always observe the speed limit, especially in hot countries like Italy and Spain. But in General, no rudeness on the roads. Afraid of foreigners? Partly Yes. But the root cause discipline local drivers lies rather in the fact that they are not so much afraid to neglect the rules, but simply don’t like to do it. And even in civilized countries respect each other. This creates a friendly environment in which any deviation from the norms of behavior like a eyesore. Where any driver who knowingly violates established rules, looks obviously second-rate. Absurd, ridiculous, reckless, insane and not magical.
Thanks to the efficient organization of traffic and high social responsibility of drivers drive over the border is more secure than us.Thanks to the efficient organization of traffic and high social responsibility of drivers drive over the border is more secure than us.
Getting in such an environment, even the most notorious major Russian production inevitably begins to behave decently. Why? It’s simple. First, he does not want to look like a fool. Secondly, his plans do not include communication with the local traffic police to negotiate with the representatives of which still will not work. Third, the major understood that abroad he is one, and his parents no one, and his money is useless.
In countries with a high level of social development the principle of inevitability of punishment works much more efficiently. In addition, the level of civic consciousness are much higher there, therefore, any person who notices a violation, considers it his sacred duty to inform where follows. While we “snitching” is considered to be “ashamed” abroad is a natural mechanism of interaction of citizens with bodies of Executive power. Noticed something was wrong — perhaps. Do the right thing.
And we? The rules of the road are Advisory in nature. If you can not but really want, you can. Moreover, the other acts at all like in the order of things: bypass the queue to turn and stand in front of everyone, change lanes without indicator, to “punish” the inexperienced novice, to drive away the car tarried beam from the leftmost number. To disregard the Parking rules — it’s all sacred.
There are several reasons, and they are all pretty obvious. Disrespect for other road users — this time: many drivers a sense of self-importance are downright off the charts. Besides, breaking, a man thinks: I don’t get caught, and if caught, agree or pay off. Usually what happens, enshrined in the “special” citizens deviant behavior as a personal norm.
The amount of the penalty often does not matter. As a rule, the worst offenders are the owners of expensive cars, who can afford to break. For them, the framework does not exist in the country where the ad is in the style of “return rights at any stage guarantee” has the status almost of official services, it is easy to cultivate a sense of permissiveness.
Unfortunately, the primacy of the Bank notes above the law allows almost anyone to autogamy feel in Russia go unpunished.Unfortunately, the primacy of the Bank notes above the law allows almost anyone to autogamy feel in Russia go unpunished.
Therefore, the penalties tend to be effective mainly in relation to law-abiding citizens. But someone who wants to break, will break — without any prejudice to yourself. And as long as the principle of inevitability of punishment will not apply to all, without exception, people will drive on the roads as they please.
On the other hand, Russian drivers, the bulk still learned behind the wheel to be fastened, and pedestrians to pass, and on an opposite not to go. In fact can, when want! Only the process is not fast. But there is hope.
