RTD Vehicle Road Accident: What Have We Become?

What have Malaysians become?

According to a Malaysiakini report, a mob had set on a RTD (Road Transport Department) vehicle that had allegedly caused a 10-vehicle pile up in Ayer Tawar, Perak.

According to the report, no one had been seriously injured, but it seemed that an angry mob had surrounded the RTD vehicle and overturned it.

Objects had been thrown at the vehicle, including helmets as can bee seen in a video uploaded by a witness.

There had also been shouts of 'bakar!' ('burn!') and somehow the RTD vehicle caught fire and could be seen burning in the video.

Even the policemen present were unable to control the mob, some of whom could be hard or seen clapping or cheering.

This is really scary. No one wants to be caught in a similar situation should he be involved in an accident.

What have Malaysians become?

If everyone takes the law into his own hands, then there will be a breakdown of law and order.

Malaysians are known for their gentle nature. Or is this merely a facade we put on for show?

Of course, I am not being naive.

We are also known for being altogether a different character once we are behind the wheel. The number of senseless road rage cases here merely testifies to this.

So, the next time you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident, it might be wiser and perhaps even save you own life to just flee from the scene?

When that happens each time, we will all deserve what we deserve.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
