Road hog learns more haste means less speed

A boorish Phnom Penh driver got a lesson in minding his manners on Wednesday night when he crashed his car into a pole at high speed while trying to push in front of a fellow driver.

Police reported that the man’s haste got the better of him when his Camry careened into a pole, bringing it down while felling a nearby tree and pivoting his car into an innocent motorcyclist. Officers arrived and compelled the driver to pay $40 to his victim.
