Caution All Drivers!!!


Kebelakangan ni, jenayah dan kecelakaan yang melibatkan pengguna jalan raya sangat menjadi-jadi. Bermula dari kes ragut bermotosikal, road bully, langgar lari, simbah minyak atas highway, dan bermacam2 lagi bentuk kreativiti yg ditonjolkan oleh sesetengah individu atau kelompok yang hanya mementingkan diri sendiri tanpa mengambil kira perasaan dan akibat yg diterima oleh orang laen. Tak kira la samada mereka melakukan itu semua itu mengaut keuntungan dunia dengan cara mudah seperti meragut, ataupun memuaskan nafsu serakah sendiri seperti merempit dan road bully, atau juga melepaskan diri dr tanggungjawab dengan cara yg tidak berperi kemanusiaan seperti langgar lari...semuanya mendatangkan kesan buruk kepada mangsa, dan juga kepada si pemangsa akhirnya...

Walaupun tidak begitu menakutkan, tetapi cukup untuk menggambarkan keganasan yg terjadi ke atas basikal malang ini...

Beberapa ketika dulu, aku pernah terbaca satu bulletin post yang ditulis oleh seorang kawan...posting tersebut menceritakan tentang bagaimana dia hampir terlibat dalam salah satu jenayah jalan raya yang aku sebutkan di atas...he's got lucky not to trust those bandits...
The story goes like this...

This incident happened to me and be very careful if you ever encounter such case in future. On Thursday 5 February, I was driving in the afternoon. Quite a number of cars on the road. I was driving near the UE3, Taman Miharja, Cheras when two Indian guys on a motorbike honked me and pointed to the passenger-side wheel. I slowed down, not stopping but they kept honking and pointing to the wheel.

Finally, I stopped at the side of the road in front of the UE3 complex. The two guys stopped and came down from their bike. One has the "BMW" name and logo on his blue shirt. While the other guy squatted in front of the passenger-side wheel (I can't see him), the "BMW" guy came to the passenger side. My car is always locked when I drive and I lowered the passenger-side window about two inches to talk with him.

Speaking in Malay, he told me my wheel has smoke and oil. I hesitated evaluating the situation, and he then bent down at the wheel and came up showing me his finger with some oil on it. He said my brake oil is leaking and cannot drive and asked me to go out to see the wheel. Pointing to Taman Pertama which is just nearby, I told him I stay there and will go to my mechanic there for check-up. He kept insisting I don't drive as my brakes are not working and I can get an accident. He kept asking me to go down and look at the wheel. I said no and I drove off.

I drove home very slowly in case I really cannot brake the car. 10 minutes later I arrived at the mechanic shop which is quite near to my house. I asked the mechanic if there is any oil in the wheel, he touched it and said yes and possible brake oil is leaking. He took it into the workshop and took out the wheel. Behold, there was no leak, all dry. There was some oil at the brake pad and at the back of the tyre. He took out the driver-side tyre and it was dry too. He told me the only possible answer was that someone must have poured oil into my wheel. He washed the tyres and cleaned up the oil and then I went off.


I didn't tell the mechanic what had happened earlier but I think I know what happened. The two Indian guys stopped me. While one was talking with me, the other guy squatting at the wheel must have poured some oil into my wheel, making me think my car's brake oil was leaking and in panic, I might go down and check (that's why he kept asking me to go out and see). If I go out of the car to see, the following things can happen:

1. One guy will drive off with my car (hoping in panic I'll leave the car keys in the car) while the other will ride off in his motorbike.


2. They will threaten and rob me. (with or without injury)


3. They will say they can repair my car very fast with no hassle and charge me a high fee.

Looking at the crime situation in KL these days, I think either one of the first two possibilities will happen. Thank God, I was alert and didn't panic. So for you drivers in KL, please be careful and be alert at all times while driving. Don't be so gullible and take all word as true. If it happens, drive to the nearest police station or mechanic workshop. The worst thing that can happen is to buy two brand new tyres (if tyres are damaged) or pay to repair for the damage done to the car. Cheaper than your life, or your car.

So drive carefully. Take care.

Thanx to Syed Ahmad Farhan for sharing...
See???
Betapa bahayanya jalan raya di Malaysia kini...betapa kita begitu mudah terdedah kepada jenayah dan kecelakaan sebegini kalau kita tidak berhati2 selalu...kejadian yang tidak kita sangka2, mungkin boleh berlaku pada kita...sebab, mereka2 yg telah pun menjadi mangsa sememangnya tidak menjangkakan kejadian itu akan berlaku ke atas mereka...so do we...
Starting today, increase our level of cautiousness...better late than sorry...

Prevent is better than cure...chiao...
