If you drive an expensive car you're probably a jerk, scientists say

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Article on CNN
The science is looking pretty unanimous on this one: Drivers of expensive cars are the worst.

A new study has found that drivers of flashy vehicles are less likely to stop and allow pedestrians to cross the road -- with the likelihood they'll slow down decreasing by 3% for every extra $1,000 that their vehicle is worth.

Hopefully the study didn't cost too much, I notice this behavior while cycling in Phnom Penh every day.

I believe it doesn't apply here...
People here treasure their cars more than anything else. They wouldn't want you to dirty or even touch their precious expensive car. :popcorn:

That is unless you are a girl, then they treasure their smartphone more than anything else. Interesting question,,, Ask a girl which of the two she would lose first. Her smartphone or her virginity.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

I'm trying imagine the situation that could even possibly lead to that question.
