1st Concern: The Risky Man

The first concern came from a 20s year old mother and housewife, Kim Min-jeong. She comes to "Hello Counselor" because she has a problem with her husband. Every day she has to go through life and death situations. It was caused by her husband who became evil when he held the steering wheel. Her husband always yelling and cursing when he drive even to elder people. The problem is that it happens even when she and their kids are in the car and he still drives recklessly. She afraid that something horrible might happen because of it. She comes to "Hello Counselor" to stop her husband.

She says that her husband always drives as if she were competing in racetrack. Her husband will not yields with others and usually he drives up to 140 km / h even though he and his son are in the car. When she tried to stop her husband, he frightened her, like stopping abruptly when in a red light to make her stumble to the front, etc. A truck driver was trying to cut in one day, her husband didn't yield and instead he got into a quarrel. He even chased the truck driver and start to fight with the truck driver even though his kids was there crying. Actually, her husband is very relaxed and easygoing. He's kind to his kids and an attentive husband to her, but he changes only when he drives.

We meet with the husband. He said that his instinct to turn him become violent when he drives. About the truck driver case, he said that when he warned him for breaking traffic rules, instead he raised his middle finger while on the phone, so he chased him and finally the truck driver apologized to him. The reason why he often speeding is because he works at an agricultural product wholesaler and he has to deliver fresh food quickly. His client will complain if he is late with the delivery, but mostly he was late because arguing with another driver on his way. He also said that he deliberately frightened his wife while driving to stop her nagging at him. He admit that he was wrong at that moment but he keep repeating the same mistake the next time.

Well, it's strange that he suddenly changed only when driving. Based on his statement, he has never been involved in a major accident but based on his wife, it was a lie. His wife accidentally found a message that her husband was involved in a fight and broke the teeth of another driver. And the settlement money was around $ 2,000. But not only that, it turns out her husband has often experienced a similar incident without being noticed by his wife. And of course he has spent a lot of money as the settlement money. It's a pity, right? Money that could have been used for the needs of his child or his family was wasted as a result of his behavior.

His sister and his friend also came to "Hello Counselor" to testify. They confirmed that he suddenly changed only while driving. His sister said he was kind to his family but changed when he was driving, even when their parents were in it. His sister also added, once he had been involved in a big accident that even the entire family did not know. He had to undergo major surgery and was in hospital for several months.

It's good that he and his family still safe until now, because it's dangerous to drive recklessly. The husband knew that it was wrong, he even have made promise to change after the bad things of the past, but it was not easy, he repeated again his bad habits. By being willing to come to this show, it has proved that he has an intention to change. I agree that he needs to see a psychiatrist to help him change.

In the end, she want her husband to make promises that he will think of his family when he drives and he won't make his family anxious. The husband also agrees with the promises and will try to change slowly. He also apologized to all the drivers who had been involved in troubles with him in the past.

Overall, I would vote this matter as a serious concern. He really need to change his bad habits for the happiness of his family and people around him. He should think of his family while driving so he will not drive carelessly. With this, she earned 157 votes out of 200 audiences.
