Check your BRAKES, make sure its working ... brakes is the ultimate life savers most of the time. You also need to check your engine oil, and brakes oil, gear oil, auto transmission oilpower steering oil too, to make sure you car wont break down in the middle of the highway. Water level is also important, always make sure you got couple spare bottles of water in your trunk, they dont take up much space but they could save lifes.
Check all tyres and make sure they are properly inflated, i always have a footpump in my trunk in case i got a flat tyre, that way i dont hafta change my tyre in the middle of the highway and pose danger to others road users. Please also make sure your spare tyre is properly inflated too.
Replace the coolant in your radiator because over the time the chemical agents might be lost. There will be massive jams in the highway and you dont want your temperature to jump sky high during them jam.
Have some livita or coffee in the car, they will help you to stay awake. If you are too tired, stop and rest! its not worth risking your life and the lifes of your loves one not to mention other road users too.
Do not speed! follow the speed limit and stay on the left lane if you are not overtaking. Do not race with other road users.
Clean your windshield properly, a dirty winshield will cause you to over concentrate and over a period of time you will feel worn out. Its wise to have a clean unobstructed windshield while you are driving.
If you car broke down in the highway, place a highlyvisibly safety cone about 60 - 100 feet behind your car, this will allow ample time for other road users to react to avoid any form of collision.
Last but not least ... DRIVE CAREFULLY!!! DO NOT BE A STATISTIC!!! I WANT ALL OF YOU TO COME BACK IN ONE PIECE AND KEEP READING MY CRAPS OK?!!!
Below are the pics taken a few days ago at the Kajang Silk Toll plaza, this car was speeding and lost control of the car, rammed onto the divider and caught fire. 5 of them, 4 got out, the last one was trapped and burnt alive.
This message came together with the email :
MENGERIKAN - Kereta Wira terbakar di exit Kajang
Semasa on the way nak ke KL berdekatan dengan exit Kajang, sebuah kereta Wira yang dipandu dlm keadaan laju terbabas dan melanggar penghadang jalan lalu terbakar. Dalamnya ada 5 orang remaja Cina, 4 daripadanya sempat selamatkan tetapi seorang lagi tersepit .. maka ajalnya pun tibalah....
Moral of the stories.. jangan bawak kereta nasional terlebih laju... kalau dah kerajaan totapkan 110km/h maka ikutlah.. kalau tak inilah akibatnya.. berhati hati dijalan raya pada musim perayaan ini...
DRIVE VERY VERY CAREFULLY!!!
Happy Holiday Everyone!!!
