The Star once published a letter by one of its readers that mentioned, “It is a shame that one of the most seemingly useless things in Malay­sia is the zebra crossing.”

The writer went on to explain that there is either confusion or lack of regard among many Malaysians on how zebra crossings work.

Similarly, a netizen shared his story of how he was almost knocked down by an egotistical driver who failed to adhere to the rules concerning zebra crossings.

In his tweet, he wrote, “Please educate drivers in Malaysia.”

“I can no longer tolerate people who are stupid beyond reason.”

Sharing what is believed to be his Facebook post, the netizen explained the difference between a white marked zebra crossing and a yellow marked zebra crossing.

“When you see a white marked zebra crossing, this means that as a driver you have to stop when you see pedestrians crossing the road.”

“And when you see a yellow marked crossing, it depends on which road user arrives first at the crossing.”

“If the driver arrives first then the pedestrian will have to wait for their turn.”

“But should the yellow marked crossing be accompanied with a traffic signal, as a driver you must adhere to the traffic signal.”

Triggered by the lack of knowledge in part of Malaysian drivers, netizens piled on the hurt towards the apparent ignorance of these kinds of drivers.

“When I was in Thailand, vehicles would stop and give way to pedestrians crossing at the line.”

“Actually, I’m quite surprised that in Malaysia the zebra crossing means run faster and avoid getting hit.”

Some even acknowledged that they do not know the difference but stop their vehicle nevertheless at the zebra crossing.
