Car on Federal Highway motorcycle lane causes accident

Not again. Unfortunately, it has happened again and it’s a bit closer to home as we here at Bikes Republic plus thousands of other motorcyclists use this particular stretch of motorcycle lane on the Federal Highway. Another car was caught using the designated lane for motorcycles but this time, going the wrong way!

We’re not too entirely sure how this happened but the incident took place near the Mid Valley Megamall area. The unfortunate Yamaha YZF-R15 rider was riding on the motorcycle lane while his action camera was recording when suddenly a motorcycle and a car came out the wrong way of the poorly lit ‘tunnel’.

It was raining at the time and catching the rider by surprise, the rider had no option but to bail off the road and onto slippery grass. This led to him losing control and hitting the wall outside of the tunnel, where another rider managed to stop safely to avoid the oncoming traffic caused by the car coming from the other side.

A white Toyota Vios was the culprit and this incident is literally death waiting to happen. A lot of motorcyclists who frequent the Federal Highway rely heavily on the motorcycle lane (every part that’s open for use) to get to their destinations safely and away from the congestion on the main road.

With such a small margin of error thanks to road’s width, physical condition, and poorly lit areas (even after the ‘renovation’), to come across a car coming at you is just insanity. Hopefully, the authorities are able to apprehend the culprit and find out what and how the hell it had happened.

A passionate individual when it comes to anything related to two wheels (or sometimes more), he enjoys the chaotic and magical world of motorsports as much as riding leisurely to the shops on his beloved Vespa. With an education-based background, he is always eager to learn and share about the poetic arts of motorcycling.
