Horrific Camerons Bus Crash

I am horrified reading about the double-decker tour coach that crashed coming down from Cameron Highlands where the driver lost control of it, crashed into the divider, plowed onto the other side of the road and landed in the ditch. 27 people have died in this accident only a few survived the crash. The only lucky thing about this is that the bus did not crash into other road used on the other side of the road. Otherwise, it would be a whole lot worse.

I am horrified by the number of deaths and also the fact that I have contemplated visiting Cameron Highlands but am postponing my trip because of heavy rainfall at the end of the year. Maybe it will be more conducive to travel around Chinese New Year time when the weather will supposedly be dry but then one can hardly tell due to global warming.

Also, I have been travelling by express coach so many times now to Kuala Lumpur, it is just scary to think of any one of my bus trips would end up in a ditch. Being careful is one thing but when we are travelling by public transport, we are putting our lives in someone else's hands. Let's pray to God to look out for us.
