road accident 交通意外

This was the result of an accident on 11-1-11!

It was 5:30 pm. I was driving along Subang Airport road on the way home. Traffic was heavy and slow moving.

My car was stationary when suddenly I heard a "thud" sound ... something has hit the back of my car. I looked at the real view mirror, not the car behind me because it was quite a safe distant behind. What was that?

I came out of the car to inspect. I saw a motorcycle and a rider lied on the road at the rear left of my car.

I was frozen for a split second. This was the familiar sight on Malaysian roads - motorcyclist lying dead by the side of the motorcycle!

Many Malaysian motorcyclists are like the Japanese kamikaze pilots. They are as if constantly on a death mission - not to kill enemies, but themselves.

Thanks to the Japanese manufactured light, cheap and fast motor cycles called
cubs, they charge ahead at high speed, swerving right and left, beating traffic lights, disregard the safety of themselves and other road users.

Motorcyclists recorded the highest fatalities in road accidents in 2009. Of the 6745 road fatalities, 4070 were motorcyclists; of the 8849 cases of serious injuries, 5758 were motorcyclist and pillion riders.

To my relief, I saw the cyclist sitting up slowly... I assisted him to stand up. He seemed to be alright with helmet tightly on, no bleeding and was able to walk. A Malay man came to assist me to push the motorcycle to the kerb.

It seemed he was wriggling among cars, in quite a speed...suddenly, his handle bars clipped the side mirror of a car behind me on another lane, he lost balance, flew and banged on my car...with quite a force that broke my rear bumper.

Making sure the motorcyclist did not require any further assistance, I drove off after taken down his particulars.


上端的照片,是11-1-11 一场意外的结果。

已经是傍晚五点半了,我驾车回家路上,途径梳邦机场路,交通塞挤,行驶缓慢。我的车已经是停止了,突然我听到一声响,好像我的车被撞。我看了看望后镜,不是后面的车撞我,因为和我的车有个安全距离。我下车去查看。当我走到车后方的时候,见到一辆摩多单车和一位骑士倒在我车的左后边。

我的心突然冷了半截。这不就是在马来西亚公路常可以看到的一个景象- 没有生命迹象的骑士,倒躺在他的摩多单车旁!

很多马来西亚的电单车骑士,他们好像日本二战时的『神风敢死队』的飞机师。他们永远都好像是在执行战争使命般的冲冲冲,不是去消灭敌人,而是消灭自己!

应该多谢日本人制造了更小巧,便宜及快速的小型摩多单车,称为 cubs (急仔),骑士可以快速往前冲,左拐右弯,在车龙中,前冲后撞,进出自如。他们罔顾交通灯,交通规则,别人的安全及自己的安全。

摩多单车骑士在2009年,创造了最高的公路死亡率。在6745宗交通死亡人数中,单车骑士的死亡人数就4070人;8849宗公路意外严重受伤人数里,骑士及后座者就占了5758人。(马来西亚公路研究学院资料)

很快的我也回过神来,看到那位骑士慢慢的坐起来,我就往前去扶他起来。看来他没有受伤,没有流血,头盔还好好的戴着(这可能给他保护)。一位马来人兄弟前来帮忙,把他的单车推到旁边。

根据其他人士,这骑士是很飞快,在车龙中拐来拐去,不幸的他的把手撞上了在我后面另一车道一辆车的旁镜子,失去平衡,飞撞到我的车后方,力度非常的大,因为我的后面防撞板。

我记载了他的个人资料后,也肯定的他没受伤,不需扶助,就驾车离开了。
