Do you remember about our car that was submerged in flood and had to be towed to the workshop? Apparently the Perdana now has no value in the market and the insurance company can’t declare it a total loss eventhough the repair would have costed RM14K. (meaning the car will still be repaired but sold off and the insurance pay the amount the car is insured) So, after much to and fro negotiations, the workshop only change a few parts. Now it is smelling like a new car with the new leather upholstery.
During that period, my atm got himself the company car normally driven by his office despatch assistant. I tell you, I almost killed a motor biker because the lousy rear view mirror has blind spots. When someone gets too near, I don’t see them on the mirror anymore. And that freaking mirror enlarge cars in the distance into huge ones, cause me to think that they are very near. Duh. I never knew about blind spots until I drove that cb Wira. (ok lah, I exaggerated a bit about killing a biker but I did scare the hell out of him and I). So, folks do be careful with blind spots on your mirrors.
I only remember about this matter after finding the post about Blind Spot Mirrors. Some of our local cars do have this freakish shortcomings. I know my brother-in-law also complained about his Waja and blindspots.
If we are driving in small towns like my area, you do need to be careful ‘cos there are lots of Mat Rempits and Ah Bengs bikers who can appear out of nowhere, riding next to you like a little duck following the mama duck. You can’t see them unless you keep turning to the back.
Though this post is a sponsored one, I hope everyone is aware of blind spots with the illustrations above. Don’t scare the hell out of yourself when you are doing a lane switch and almost knock down some bikers. Usually, they don’t pay attention to our signal lights from their position or they can’t see our signal light.
Berhati-hati di jalanraya. Does your car has a blind spots? What model? Made in Malaysia ah?
