Federal Highway crash: Who to blame?

http://www.mmail.com.my/sites/default/files/1_2357.jpgA series of freak mishaps killed five people on the Federal Highway yesterday morning.

It raises many questions and naturally - who is to be blamed?

1. Do we blame the three motorcyclists who were using the Federal Highway despite it being strictly off-limits for motorcyclists as they are supposed to use the motorcycle lane?

2. Do we blame 21-year-old Wilson Lee who was believed to be speeding before he lost control of his Honda City and hit into the three motorcyclists stationed at the side of the road?

3. Do we blame M. Kalaychelven, 50, for getting down of his vehicle to help the victims?

4. Do we blame a supposed mob that attack Wilson after the accident as widely rumoured online? (note: the police have dismissed such claims)

5. Do we blame the crappy motorcycle lanes at the Federal Highway?

6. Do we blame certain quarters for not wanting to install the AES?

7. Do we blame certain quarters for insisting prices of vehicles and petrol should be lowered?

Beyond these questions - we must ask ourselves: what is the solution?

HD says: I avoid using the Federal Highway when I ride. I hate the motorcycle lanes and prefer to use alternative roads instead.
