Beware of Potholes & Raised up Manholes


We were doing gardening last Saturday morning and suddenly we heard a loud bang. Apah thought it was like a major accident but I thought how could this happen within the residential roads…

It was an Alfa Romeo which ran over a manhole which was actually protruding out from the road (most of the manholes are like that around my neighbourhood) and it hit the gear box or something. Whatever it is, it was a loud bang and the oil was leaking all over and both his airbags were released. When Apah went over to check on the guy, he was bleeding from his nose and looked really shocked and dazed. Who wouldn’t after an accident like this! Apah made sure he could call for help and was ok then walked back la.

Wah, very dangerous la liddis…next time must drive more carefully and try to avoid the manholes. I remembered a friend was driving a Camry and ran over a pothole and the rim of one of the car tyre bended and had to be replaced! That’s why must slow down and avoid such holes la! During such incidents, the driver may get shocked and the car could have diverted and hit another car leh!

Try reporting to local councils of such potholes and you can vomit blood one…but I used to have an ex-colleague who’s so persistent, she calls the council everyday without fail until the repair is done! But then again…who’s so free like her??
