Last Saturday, while I am on my home from school, I witness a serious accident.

The scene of the accident is vivid in my mind. On that day, I have to go back from my
extra class by taxi as my mother has to work overtime.

A motorcyclist is following my taxi very closely. He is so impatient that he is


trying to overtake my taxi even near a sharp bend. At that critical moment, there is an
oncoming car. It is speeding at 120 km/h. The taxi driver swerves to the roadside and
loses control of the car. With my eyes seal tight, I can feel my body float off the seat
of the car. I get a jolt due to the sudden movement of the taxi.

However, it is too late for the motorcyclist to avoid the car. He has no room to
veer either right or left. His motorcycle runs against the bumper of the car and smashes
its windscreen. The motorcyclist somersaults over the car and is lying in a pool of
blood. It is a scene to chill the flesh! The car driver who is cut by the flying glass is in
state of shock. Everything happens in a split second and fear overwhelms us.

The taxi driver slams on the brakes to stop the taxi which produces a loud
screeching sounds. Without wasting time, I quickly run to the nearest telephone booth
to inform the police and the hospital. From a distance, I can see some people trying to
help the injured motorcyclist and the car driver. The motorcyclist breaks his leg while
the car driver who is shaken only suffers from minor injury. They carry the victims into
one of the onlooker’s car and send them to the hospital for treatment. Luckily, there is
no fatalities in the accident.

Meanwhile, the taxi driver tries to control and direct the traffic. Soon, the police
arrive and they promptly take some measurements and evidences. After that, they
move the damaged car and the motorcycle to the roadside to ease the traffic. The car
is a write-off. They also take down the evidence provided by witnesses and onlookers.
Some sweepers are clearing the debris and blood stains on the road.

When the taxi finally continues the journey, I silently thank God for my narrow
escape. I learned a good lesson that impatience and recklessness would bring harm
and danger. I am happy to see that Malaysians are public-spirited and they render
help to others readily. Since then, I remember and follow the saying ‘more haste less
speed’ and ‘prevention is better than cure’. I believe good road manners and road
safety campaigns can help to reduce the number of road accidents which cause
injuries, loss and death.
