The Right of Way
During the first near-accident, I was approaching a junction with an Alphard that was waiting for me to go past. Little did I expect, a stupid motocyclist just zipped out from the side. I slammed on the brakes but I did not stop in time. Luckily the motorcyclists realized that he overshot the junction and stopped just in time. If not, terbanglah dia. The latest incident happened during a heavy downpour. It was at another junction and I was slowing down because an Iswara zipped across the road in front of me. In my mind I was thinking if there were any more idiot motorcyclists. As I drove though that junction, an IDIOT motoyclist did speed into my vector. He was so fast that by the time I had noticed, the side of the bumper had already banged into his rear wheel. God smiled on us-- the motorcycle just wobbled and he did not fall off. Both of us stopped at the roadside and by the time I got out to inspect the damage, he had already left the scene.
Unfortunately, SK's car's bumper was scratched and the bracket got busted in. :(. DBKL should really put more stop signs and speed bumps. Everyone thinks that it's a "straight road". A "straight road" to the afterlife if you don't stop and look left, look right! Drive safely people.
