Sometimes we need to do an emergency u-turn because we made a wrong turn… but please avoid making illegal u-turns because it’s dangerous!

A driver in Kota Bharu, Kelantan recently caused an accident with two motorcyclists after he decided to make an illegal u-turn without considering the incoming traffic.
The incident that happened yesterday (March 25th), on Jalan Kelochor went viral after Info Roadblock JPJ/POLIS shared a CCTV clip showing a car slowing down to switch to the right lane, before making the illegal u-turn.
After slowing down, the car is seen turning to the left, seemingly wanting to make a u-turn to enter the opposite lane, when the two motorcycles approached.
One of the motorcycles managed to dodge the hit, however, the second motorcycle failed to avoid the car and rammed into it, causing the rider to fall on the ground.
Passersby were quick to help the motorcyclist while the car backed up and parked at the side of the road. It is unsure whether the motorcyclists were hurt.
Be responsible when you’re driving, and be safe on the road, guys!
