Panaromic view of Jalan Pekaka 1, Taman Pekaka.
Almost the whole stretch of Jalan Pekaka is accident prone. The road slopes down from the traffic lights at the T-junction with Jalan Bukit Gambir. Cars turning into Jalan Pekaka usually speed down the road to Sungai Dua. Add a few junctions along the way coupled with impatient drivers and you have the perfect recipe for accidents. Countless vehicular accidents have happened along this stretch, usually tailgating fender benders.
As I was writing the previous blog yesterday, I heard a loud crash. Looking down from the window, I saw a woman lying motionless on the road. Her scooter was a good 20 meters away and pinned under the bonnet of a Wira. This happened just beside the Taman Pekaka surau.
4:14pm – View from my window. The scooter is pinned under the bonnet of the green Wira on the left. The victim is lying near the yellow box. A helmet lies beside the blue car on the other side of the road.
