Backwards approach to driving leads to violence

There's the new Traffic Law, sure, but perhaps we shouldn’t hold out hope for any quick fixes. Case in point: the soldier who decided to drive his car backwards in the wee hours yesterday in the capital’s Sen Sok district.

The move surprised two students on motorbikes, who wiped out when they realised too late the vehicle was headed directly toward them in reverse.

After checking on the duo, the soldier decided everyone was fine and started back to his car, only to be smacked on the back of the head. A brawl ensued and all three were arrested.
