Fake police outriders and wannabe VIPs

Road users must learn to cope with heavy traffic and ill-mannered drivers on Malaysian roads, but one experience leaves them more frustrated and angry than normal; when they are stopped by police outriders and forced to squeeze their vehicle close to a monsoon drain, kerb, or another vehicle so that a swollen-headed, top-ranking Little Napoleon may reach his destination smoothly and without delay.

The frustrations increase if one happens to live in an area where a Little Napoleon has his official residence. Every trip will entail at least one encounter with police outriders, as this person goes to and from work or to a function.

Polite and courteous police outriders are few and far between, we are normally confronted by rude and uncompromising police outriders.
