Kenari Vs. Trailer 5 Death - Fatigue Killed People!

Perodua KenariResource: Perodua Singapore

1. Above is the photo of normal Perodua Kenari that you can easily find on Malaysian road. However, during the crash with a container trailer last week, the car had "lost" its original-well-being. Five members of a family including a 10-month-old baby boy were killed in the accident.

Perodua Kenari Maran Case 12. The impact of the crash threw four of the victims out of the car and the baby's body was sadly found in a drain. The Perodua Kenari was dragged for about 80m before coming to a stop at the edge of a hill. Based on words from the witnesses, the trailer rammed into the middle road divider and a lamp post which broke into two before colliding with the car from the opposite lane.

Maran Accident3. Fatigue is the most probable cause of the accident. Based on words from trailer driver assistant, the trailer driver had driven for 48 hours in a row without sleep and rest. As for any braking marks, the investigation team found them on the trailer travelling lane but cannot confirm as yet because they are probably due to brake marks from other vehicles which suddenly stopped after saw the accident. Plus, the widths of the skid marks were not matched with the width tire of the trailer. Below are some more post-crash photos of the unlucky Perodua Kenari.

Trailer Maran Case 15. Well, it is not the lorry driver was 100% to be blamed. Instead, we should blame the trailer company because they were not implementing a good safety, health and environment (SHE) procedures for their employees. Look what has happened? It is not impossible that same accident will happen again in the future if the fleet company still do nothing and can easily escape during this kind of incident.

6. In conclusion, fatigue can really kill people. So, please make sure before you drive any vehicles, you are in a good shape, getting enough sleep and eating well. If not, we might kill people without intending to do it. Five persons were not a small number to begin with. So let's drive safe.

My Car was Stolen? [Video]

1. This is very interesting video about an "idiot" who forget to pull his handbrake when filling the gas and later he thought that "My car was stolen?". Watch it!

2. I think it's funny that he heard the car hit the ditch, realized it was his car, then went back to filling his little gas tank! Then he looks up at the other people, probably saying, "I don't know who's car that is, I'm not that stupid!" Hahaha.

General Motors (GM) Will Sell Cars on eBay?

Ebay logo1. This is a breaking news for me. Well, after recovering from the economic unstability, General Motors (GM) is considering a partnership with eBay to make it easier for consumers to impulse-buy new vehicles as announced yesterday. Though the deal isn't yet finalized, GM would like to sell their vehicles both through traditional auctions (Bidding) and with a "Buy It Now" option.

One G.M. dealer said he had already talked with the company about the program and was excited about it.

The dealer, Inder Dosanjh, who owns Dublin Chevrolet outside San Francisco, said listing new cars on eBay would allow his dealership to get in front of customers who were doing most of their car shopping on the Internet. He said that would include some people who might not have otherwise considered a G.M. car.

For customers, he added, shopping on eBay could take some of the pressure off the negotiation process. "One of the fears the customer has when they walk in the door is that they are going to pay too much for a car," Mr. Dosanjh said. "If they are negotiating a deal on eBay, from their living room, they are in their comfort level."

2. State franchising laws prohibit car makers from selling directly to consumers, and it looks like dealers will still have a significant amount of leverage, including control over "the inventory and what pricing they have out there." Would you buy a new G.M. through eBay, or is haggling in person with the dealer half the fun?

Interesting Painted Cars

Weird Car Painting 11. These are the photos of interesting painted cars. Are they safe being on the road? In my opinion, some of the paintings might distract other road users and thus being the cause of the accident. Don't you agree?

Volkswagen L1 2010: Saving Your Fuel Budget

Volkswagen L1 11. This is such a great news to all people. In this age of stratospheric oil prices, the scientists at Volkswagen are working away on the L1 concept that will go 100 kilometres for every litre of gasoline.

2. In addition, Volkswagen is very keen on the L1 estimated hitting streets as early as 2010. However, the L1 concept can seat only two adults, one behind the other like a motorcycle and will top out at a maximum speed of 75mph (about 110kmh).

3. On a positive note, this design will make the L1 narrow enough to cut across the narrow city streets with veritable ease.
