I see dead people

There are 17 road fatalities every day in Malaysia. Yesterday I was passing an accident with two motorbike riders being ran over by a truck. They bled to death on the spot.

Having spent 45 minutes to cover 2 Kilometers, there is a chance that the ambulance came too late. There were plenty of people just gaping at the bodies and people on the other rod side slowed to catch the sight of their feloow (dead) countryman. I have now seen more dead people on the road in the one year I am here than in my entire life before. The other day we passed this accident where a truck crashed through the barriers and straight into a car on the other side of the road. It was said the driver lost control over the vehicle. The part of the road is straight and flat; sun was shining.

Last weekend they stopped dozens of truck and bus drivers, testing them positive on drug abuse.
