“Any individual who has information regarding the incident can go to the nearest police station or contact the traffic investigating officer, Inspector Henry Dass Tevatus at 016-5072413,” said Superintendent Zaizul Rizal.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
