Pun­ish driver who videoed ac­ci­dent while in the fast lane

New Straits Times - - Letters -

I RE­FER to the tragic news about a mo­torist who was killed when some­one drove in the wrong di­rec­tion on a high­way .

In our in­sa­tiable ap­petite to share ev­ery­thing we see by record­ing videos and put­ting them on­line, we of­ten fail to warn those who do so of the laws that they are break­ing and the dan­gers that they could be ex­pos­ing others to.

A video was posted on­line of the ac­cused driver driv­ing in the wrong di­rec­tion and caus­ing a mul­ti­ple car pile-up.

I am ap­palled and alarmed over this clip, as it is very clear from the video that the in­di­vid­ual who did the record­ing did it while driv­ing in the fast lane.

How crazy and ir­re­spon­si­ble is that?

This reck­less­ness could have caused another ac­ci­dent and re­sulted in the loss of more lives.

I hope the author­i­ties will charge this reck­less driver for en­dan­ger­ing other road users.
