There seems to be two traffic rules running in every city, one for the poor and one for the elite; until and unless the law becomes unanimous for everyone we will be remain an enslaved nation to corruption. I would like to draw the attention of the authorities to the increasing number of road accidents in Klang. Many people have lost their lives to reckless driving as this road has no speed limit and traffic wardens to monitor the traffic but they seem to lack the spirit to do anything to control the fast traffic. I once saw a woman mowed down by a speeding car; everyone was helpless to do anything and the woman died on the road.

There is a need to have traffic police, who exercise their duty with care and diligence. By addressing this issue, it is hoped that the public awareness to the dangers of reckless driving can be raised. It is time the traffic authorities took strong measures against these reckless drivers, which could include heavy fines and forfeiting of driving licenses, if found guilty.
