Her Last Call Was From A Cellphone

Got a forwarded e-mail from Ibu early this morning. *She's currently in Egypt, btw, visiting my youngest sister Kira for a whole month*

The message was;
Dearest Ema, Kaklong, Bangteh, Ewa, Kakngah, Kak De and last but not least ,Enciknya in order of priority
--tolong jangan guna handphone semasa memandu pleeaseee!
It is not worth it,all the texting and smssing and the phonechatting while driving are not worth dying for.
*Author's note: nasib baik I was listed 3rd last. Pheww!

In any case, I think I am also guilty of this. Talking on the phone, smsing, Blackberry-ing. I tell you that BBM is the devil. Can not resist everytime the BB vibrates - it just compells me to grab and read it. Must must must resist the temptation to reply instant messaging instantly, lah. It's just sooo dangerous!

Anyways, being the caring citizen that I am, I'd like to share the forwarded e-mail with you, as below:

Sometimes only a picture can get our attention!

Her last call was from a new cell phone...

Doyou see the motorcycle?


Now do you see it?



The Honda rider was travelling at approximately 85 mph.

The VW driver was talking on a cell phone when she pulled out from a side street, apparently not seeing the motorcycle.

The riders’ reaction time was not sufficient to avoid this accident.

The car had two passengers.The bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them.

The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact, and landed 20 feet from where the collision took place.

All three involved (two in the car and the bike rider) were killed instantly.

This graphic demonstration was placed at the Motorcycle Fair by the Police and Road Safety Department.

Pass this on to car drivers or soon to be new drivers, 0r new motorcycle owners...

ESPECIALLY EVERYONE YOU KNOW WHO HAS A CELL PHONE!!!!!

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Save a life

Stop talking on Cell phones and Texting while trying to drive.

The life you save may be your own... or mine...

Oh, this needs to be seen by En Rashid. He's also a major offender. Sampai Along sound..kalau nak buat accident, biar abg sorang je dalam kete...jangan buat time anak bini semua ada sekali. Geram betul...blum accident, blum serik...dah accident nanti, dah lambat dah!!

Oprah says

Dont Tempt Fate
That Text Can Wait

I would make calls bila driving; after watching Oprah, terus taubat. 125 kids died when their school bus driver texting while driving really menginsafkan

Cell phone issues aside, but why the Honda rider travelled at 85mph? Its close to 140kmh already. That should be the highlight. :P

Sorry to say but this email is B.S.
The accident is real, happened in Sweden in 2005 and the B.S. is everything else.
There was no cell phone involved.
The rider was a rookie and was going about 155mph (250km/h).

Yes, talkining on a cell or texting while driving is bad.
Travelling at 155 mph while inexperienced and on road with intersections and slow traffic is worse.
