travel home safely during festive season

chinese new year celebration is just a month away, another year passes by in a blink of an eye. it's a time for celebration, with lots of gathering and lots of food. most people will take advantage over the long holidays, pack their bags and head home to their parents home.

every festive season, we see an alarming rate of road accidents despite the great effort of the police force to create road safety awareness to the public. it is heartbreaking to see how people got killed while traveling back to their home, a celebration turned into a mourning.

while reckless driving is the main culprit, more often than not, accidents happened when the drivers subconsciously dozed off behind the wheels. sounds scary but driving without 100% alertness has claimed many many lives over the decade. in some incidents, they victimised other car and their passengers on the road but they themselves got away unhurt. in that case, they will live with the guilt for the rest of their lives.

a very important advice is to ensure that the vehicle is in good condition before making a long distance trip. it is so scary to read in the papers on how vehicles that broke down by the side of the highway actually got rammed into and people got killed instantly.

do not take risk with imitation spare parts, it might be a lot cheaper but when it failed to perform, accidents can happen. Genuine parts like disc brake, Accord Radiator
might be costly, but with a quipped with a no hassle lifetime warranty on parts and labor, it is worth every penny you paid for.
