Close Call

Close Call

Last weekend, we were traveling to our home town to celebrate the eidul fitri, a muslim celebration. Along the way, the traffic is heavy in both directions.

Suddenly, there is a car overtaking a long queue of vehicles in front and as you can see, the car seemed unable to overtake the bus within time. So, if you were traveling in the opposite direction of that car, what would you do to compensate for the drivers immature behaviour.

I had to press the brake very hard and direct the front of our vehicle far away from the middle of the road to give way for that unruly driver. For me, it was a really close call and luckily there was no untoward incident happened during that trip.

Most accident happened because other drivers don't have time to give way to the overtaking vehicle because the overtaking vehicle performed the maneuver at the wrong place and at the wrong time.

Selamat Hari Raya!
Good to know you were not one of the road accident figures!! Road manners have a long way to go and commuters need to pay heed to unnecessary loss of lives/ injuries. When will they ever learn???
