Last few days i read an email about a young woman who died in car accident, she used her blackberry while drive. Its a sad story, many people in my country not aware how they put themselves and other and danger, as driving need to be concentrate. I read many notice in Jakarta, the not allow driver to send any SMS. I just surprised, how come they send SMS while driving? But lately I realize people there love to use phone, IPhone, blackberry when drive... so bad.
Here in Malaysia we not allow to make a call while driving. Police will give us a fine. But the emphasis does not about fine it's more about safety. Compare from Jakarta, here Malaysian people will drive in high speed in the city about 60-100km/hour or drive out of town will 100-150km/hour.What do you think? Crazy? Too fast? Just come here, I bet you that you will drive faster then people here.
Can you imagine if driver use phone when drive? They can have fatal accident, and loss their life. Even without phone here so many accident happen, because thy drive too fast. When something happen in front of them they failed to react in the correct action
I know in my country we drive so slowly many traffic jam, but it doesn't mean that driver can use their phone that time for make a call, send SMS or surfing in net. If you really want to send SMS, find a safe place to stop first.
Here many times I get upset too when drive, because many drivers never give sign before they move to another side, so better always aware with any bad situation. Or sometimes another driver make me panic, because just intimidate in the behind,
not overtake our car from another lane. Make enough distance from the car in front of you, just make sure if the car behind hit u, u wont hit the car in front of you and make another fatal accident.
Never ever stop at danger place, especially in the highway. Sometimes when they drive too fast (110-140km/hour) they are not aware if there is car stop in front of them.
Check your tires, your brake periodically, always fasten your seat belt and all your passenger seat belt. Flat tires, or blowout tires can make a very bad accident, and not wear seat belt it can cause serious injury even death. If another driver make you angry, try to stay calm, remember you have a duty to prevent accident.
OK Keep save when driving, don't use phone, chat and begin to drive carefully and dont forget to respect another safety.
