Strange driving behaviour in Ipoh

Look at the two photos below (click to zoom in) for a while and see if you can figure out what they have in common...


done?

Well in case you didn't get it... these pics were taken at a traffic light, and notice the HUGE gap between the cars. In the 1st photo you can see the car diagonally in front of me, but no car through the window but there's a Kancil visible in my side mirror. Likewise in the 2nd photo there's a big gap between the Kancil (again?) and the red SUV. Now why is this?

Look again.. see the shadow on the ground? These cars are purposely stopping in the shade to avoid getting sunburnt while waiting at the lights. *rolls eyes*

Funnily enough both pics were taken at the same traffic light junction, though on different days and in opposite directions.
