At this time of writing, close to 170 people have died on the roads
in the recent “balik kampung” exodus since November 20. Compare
that with the casualty rate of the US soldiers in Iraq
(300 since May 3),
our roads seem to be much more dangerous than Iraq. The
explosives used on NKVE
notwithstanding, we don’t even need bombs to amass such a high
bodycount. Surely it’s not something to crow about in typical
“Malaysia Boleh”
style, is it? Al Fatihah.
