M. Kuzminskas said what he thinks about tripods and average speed meters

Lack of patience

According to Mindaugas, Lithuanians are quite good drivers, but they lack patience.

“You never know what made another person take a certain action. Maybe he’s going to the hospital, maybe he’s taking his pregnant wife, for example.

Sometimes you just have to be a little more patient.

Sometimes you just have to be a little more patient. Also to understand that running through a yellow light will win by just a few tens of seconds”, he assures.

The basketball player is horrified by the accidents that occur due to haste and carelessness, which claim many lives. Therefore, he believes that the most important rule should be safety.

“I’ve read somewhere that it’s better 5 minutes late than 30 years too early.” I like this idea and I think we should stick to it,” he is convinced.

Drivers who don’t leave you in trouble

And is Mindaugas a cultured driver? The basketball player smiles: “There is still room for improvement. But living in Western countries has taught me to be more polite on the road and to be more considerate of other drivers, especially of two-wheeled vehicles.”

Not only Mindaugas, but also other Lithuanians show an empathetic side. Once he went to the training of the national team and accidentally drove into a big hole, but the person who stopped did not leave him in trouble and gladly agreed to help.

“The tire burst and I was trying to do something in the city of Klaipėda. Actually, not much came out, I didn’t have a spare wheel. And a wonderful person that I had met at our match stopped by.

Anyway, we didn’t get to his service, where he found a tire in the warehouse, put it on and I was able to go to practice. To this day, I am very grateful to that person for stopping and helping without being asked by anyone”, M. Kuzminskas remembers a nice deed.

The situation is improving

According to the basketball player, the past year has brought about obvious changes in the traffic culture: “It is encouraging that more and more drivers drive more disciplined, politely give way to each other, and pass pedestrians.

I think this is one of the best ways to remind drivers to obey the traffic rules.

Tripods or average speedometers don’t bother me at all, because I think it’s one of the best ways to remind drivers to follow the rules of the road.”
