I don’t know about others but it is very sad to read about this pregnant woman who was supposed to return to her hometown to have her baby. The baby is due end of this month, meaning that baby is already a very healthy baby and can survive on its own. But their lives were cut short. Both mom and baby died in a bus accident.
Our Transport Minister (or whatever the title is, not important anyway) with the same surname as I do, wants to stop the rot. Well, same surname minister with big moustache, do you remember Ling Liong Sik’s favourite quote, if you want to stop the rot (of the fish), cut off the head. I think you are the head, so let’s cut from the top?
How did Puspakom or JPJ or whatever authorities that go around checking vehicles allow some not road worthy vehicle to ply the highways? (nah, I learnt this from PangSai)
And please don’t keep talking about :
The Transport Ministry will propose that the Government makes it mandatory for passengers to wear the rear seatbelt in all passenger cars.
The move is hoped to reduce the number of fatalities during accidents. Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said although the Government understood reasons why the public would be against it, the ruling had to be put in place in the interest of the public.(source)
Get it done. Why cannot? Because this means a family can have only three kids max? Unless everyone can afford a seven-seater. And while you are at it, please make car seat for babies and children mandatory too.
So many people have been saying ‘Ini cuma hangat-hangat tahi ayam sahaja.’ It is true. Give it another few weeks and we will forget all about it. You will find him standing at toll booths handling out Jalur Gemilang and grinning happily. Do the deaths of all these people haunt you, Mr. Minister? The baby in the womb that died before he/she can see the world?
