My Uncle's Car Involved In Accident

Summary – Is It Worth It?

Did I tell you I’m going back to Kedah (my hometown) this evening for DaPocket’s wedding. It’ll be a long drive of about 600km.

This time around, especially with the Chinese New Year around the corner, there will usually be an increase rate of accidents throughout the country. I however think that there are 4 words that if applied during driving, the risk of getting into an accidents will reduced drastically.

The words are – Is It Worth It?

Whenever you are tempted to race with another driver, say it out loud – Is it worth it? Is it worth it to be declared a winner in that dull race while there’s a possibility of being killed?

You are feeling extremely sleepy while driving. You have a choice whether to continue driving or pull over and sleep for a while. Is it really worth it to reach home 20 minutes earlier when you most probably will pass out driving and hit a pedestrian.

For motorcyclist, it is always more comfortable not wearing a helmet. But ask yourself, is it worth it to fall into a coma after the accident for the sake of 30 minutes of comfortability?

The fact is despite all our effort, road accidents still happen around the world. I”m sure everyone involved know the danger of accident but it still happen. Why?

My theory is each person must find their very own method on how to keep themselves safe. Mine is these 4 words.

– I wonder –
What’s yours?

———– Personal Note ————–
After work today, around 5pm, I will start my journey back home. I will be on leave from work until 12th. Not that I’m celebrating the new year. It is actually for preparing for DaPocket’s wedding.

Anyone in Kedah, that time?

* Kedah is the northern state of Malaysia

    filantera – hehe can only reply this when I’m already there (i mean here at home)

    Thanx for adding to the point, we can be as careful as we can, but when the car is in a terrible condition, there’s no guarantee of a safe journey. so yes, mind the car’s health

    aRa – just don’t look at them without blinking :) that’s creepy

    One of the skills needed while driving is to predict and assess any risk or danger hundreds of meters in front. We can be the most careful person in the world and still we can be involved in an accident because some other people may cause the accident..

    isn’t it this year’s resolution for you to take up driving license? :) just cook your parents a delicious dinner and pop the question eheh
