Some of these escapes. We see a lot of accidents these days, thanks to dashcams being everywhere, but it’s rather unusual. It’s quite dramatic, it was posted by the driver himself, and in fact no accident happened in the end. Which is quite surprising considering the situation.
The video begins at a traffic light junction, and judging from the surrounding buildings, such as Mah Singh’s Icon Residence, is two months behind the public. The light turns green and the Mercedes C63 AMG camcorder goes for it. It’s a slope and you can’t see the traffic in front, but the traffic that he saw right after the crest.
It’s a big bumper to bumper traffic jam, and it’s at this moment when the driver is a ‘Oh!’ Reveals. To his credit, the driver immediately knew that it was too short to brake at the stop, so he headed for the drain. I wanted to say carb (must be Eurobit). Merc then straddles the carb before cutting into the traffic, ‘Jiyalat Jiyalat Jiyalat’ quickly overlays the beats.
It is billed as a near miss, and it is. It is a combination of instinct and destiny. As Merc dived to the left, the first car in the row (white Mavi) lined up on the right and there was enough space to push. Also, there was ample space between traffic and street furniture and no bikes.
At the end of the video, the driver shows his unmarked mark after a light off-roading adventure, but others may not be so lucky. Let’s take this as a reminder not to move on a crest, because we do not know what lies ahead. This is the same common sense for blind angles. A cautious speed gives the opportunity to respond if there is an obstacle or traffic jam immediately after the peak.
Do you know other blind crests? We can think of Klang-Bound after Shah Alam on NKVE. Anyway, why so early?
