Axia stops on the road to buy mangga jeruk in Bangi, causes hit and run accident with X-Trail, motorcycle

Have you noticed recently that we have more and more mangga jeruk asam boi sellers stationed at traffic lights here in the Klang Valley? Well, it appears these street peddlers are now operating on our roads in general, not just at traffic stops. The dash cam footage below shows an unfortunate accident involving one.

Said to have happened in Bangi, the clip shows a Perodua Axia driver stopping in the middle of flowing traffic to buy the said snack. As the cars ahead were already moving, the stationary Axia caused an unnecessary block on the road. To avoid the Perodua, a Nissan X-Trail then attempted a lane change, but right into the path of a helpless motorcycle.

The X-Trail driver then simply drove away, leaving the downed motorcyclist by himself. Thankfully, the rider appears to be okay enough after the accident, assisted by the street peddler and another biker that stopped to help. It’s certainly an unlucky chain of events, started by the Axia driver inconsiderately stopping in flowing traffic.

Who to blame, then? Well, the Perodua certainly shouldn’t have stopped, the seller could have picked a more appropriate spot to peddle his wares, and the Nissan driver for sure should have checked his/her mirrors before switching lanes (and not leave the scene of an accident like that). Even the unfortunate biker could have gone a touch slower while lane splitting in slow moving traffic.

Also, did you know that street peddling in Malaysia is illegal, and so is buying from them? Local road traffic rules mandate that it is illegal to buy or sell goods at traffic lights and intersections in Malaysia. Those caught (both seller and buyer!) may be fined up to RM2,000 for the offence.

Surely that’s not a risk worth taking to get some mangga jeruk on the way home, and even more so when you can end up causing an entirely avoidable accident like this. Dear Malaysians, please be more responsible on the road as well as more considerate to each other. We are better than this, don’t you agree?

  • Not saying that it’s completely the rider’s fault, but it looks like the rear tyre of the motorcycle skidded. Too much pressure on rear brake and not enough braking on the front. If you don’t have much experience riding a motorcycle, then you shouldn’t have be speeding that fast.

      I remember donkey years ago..the driving school instructor would advise us to keep to left/slow lanes,even after passing driving test.
      Today,majority of bikes squeeze in between any gaps/lanes ..especially the food riders.(50% ignore red traffic lights)
      There is no sense of road safety anymore.
      If nothing is done,road accidental deaths/lifelong paralysis involving riders will skyrocket in coming years.

      The bike is probably driving < 60kmh, how slow you want him to drive?

      this is 100% not the bike's fault, x trail no signal unexpectedly turn, only got split sec to make the decision even you ask a MotoGP rider also he will fail to stop that bike because that shit doesnt come with abs nor you can anticipate that sohai want to turn

      • Split second? Watch the clip again, the rider can definitely avoid the collision. Yes the xtrail is at fault and not looking at their side mirrors, but as a rider myself, we should always be alert and ride within our skillset.

        I agree on pointing out the driver’s fault. But relying on other people to not hit you is dangerous. Be cautious to hazards on the road. Practice on emergency braking and swerving to avoid having a collision like in the video.

          Agreed with this statement. We should always practice defensive driving. As the rider it’s either you end up dead or live to tell the tale if you managed to take appropriate action in time and yes, riding slower in a jam helps a lot.

        Since you are aware it is split second, and even MotoGP rider will not brake on time, then you shouldn’t ride so fast when lane-splitting, because you would not have the reaction time to brake on time.

        Defensive driving/riding is not about who is wrong. That is dealt with later, hopefully with no one in the hospital. It is about avoiding accident, thinking way ahead, of what others will do and how it will affect your driving/riding safety.

        I agree the x-trail is wrong, but lane splitting at 60kph in traffic that is not moving, in my opinion as a rider and driver, is way too fast. Personally, if i need to lane split around stopped traffic, i do not do more than 30kph. Have saved me many times when some cars come out of no where. I try to keep the delta-V ( speed difference ) between my motorcycle and the cars around me that I’m lane splitting to less than 30kph.

    Semua pun Salah.

    1. Why the bike is speeding too fast while doing lane splitting?
    One should ride/drive @ safe speed Difference to others, below 20km/h difference is safer.

    2. Why the Nissan Xtrail driver run away just like that?

    3. Why the seller selling @ middle of the road? Many of them get caught.
    It’s not no enforcement, these ppl is mobile.

    4. Why Axia buyer buy from these jaywalking seller? Simply due to soft hearted.
    But, still wrong. Causing more traffic jam.

  • This is why all vehicles ought to maintain the breaking distance, according to speed being travelled and the physical condition of road. The eyes and brain should be on these. The X-Trail did not crash into the stopped Axia but it was the motocycle that hit the SUV. It is not an emergency for the Axa to stop there. He should have slowed down, signalled and moved to the left before stopping at the shoulder. The fruit seller should not be selling on such lanes but off.

    Most will say the rider is going fast. This is a very general or inaccurate statement. Being on 2 wheel, one does not have to be going fast to get involved in a dengerous situation. When lane splitting during grid lock jam, riders are going about 40kmh and sometimes slower at 20kmh depending on situation. They are seen fast by drivers because drivers are being stationary as riders pass by. Even at 20kmh, a driver trying to squeeze-change lane will cause a dangerous situation.BTW we call anyone overtaking us as ‘fast’ rider or driver.

    In this specific case specifically from the rider perspective, he should be more alert and anticipate. Yes its not his fault but being more alert and practice defensive riding helps prolong your life.

    In this case instead of keeping the throttle on after seeing the X trail closing in fast from the front, the rider should take precaution by moving towards the left lane and maintaining throttle or going faster as the road ahead is clear. The rider knows he had clear the cam car as he is going faster than the car, all riders know and udnerstand this. Specifically in this situation i wont slow down as i know its a straight, plenty of cars on the road, possibly other rider behind me, i might be able to stop but i am putting myself at risk from traffic coming from behind. I might just drop a gear while blipping the trottle and swerving left before making the split second decision depending on what the x trail does. If it commit to lane change then i just brake and slow down very hard with the brakes and engine braking. If the x trail does not change lane then i continue to pulls away easily as i am lower gear and continure riding. This sounds impossible to do but i di just that multiple times and it works for me.

    Whats the root cause of this accident? The economy is bad and people had to do anything they can to survive.

      It seems fast to drivers because it IS fast. If you can’t stop in time regardless of what the cause is, then you are going too fast. Plain and simple. Any one on a bike can tell you how fast these bikes filter. It’s certainly not 20 or 30kmh.

      How I know? Because I commute to work on a bike as well, but being on a bigger and heavier bike, I can’t filter as easily as the smaller kapchais and i keep the speeds down to a differential of 20 to 30kmh. At speeds past 70-80, I don’t even bother filtering anymore and have kapchais flying past me. I have a bunch of kapchais tailgate me frequently also. Guess what happens when I have to do an emergency stop when a car cuts me off when filtering? Well you will have a motorcycle pileup behind me. Pretty sure I have better brakes and tyres than a kapchai.

      Yes, the Axia was at fault, and yes the Xtrail was at fault to. But that doesn’t mean the motorcyclist is not at fault also.

    Many Malaysian drivers lacked courtesy and are impatient. Have you had drivers flashing their high beams and/or honked at you when you are attempting to reverse sideway into a parking lot or reversed out of a parking lot? They will only wait patiently for you if they wanted to park at your lot. On the flip side, if you give way or slow down to a driver attempting to park, you get flashed and/or honked at too.

    The classic tale of unfortunate events. As a rider, I encountered many close-call incidents that could have been totally avoided if any one of the triggering factors didn’t occur. Fortunately, I lived another day (in one piece) due to little luck and grace upon me, gaining more experience after walking away from such an incident.

    My piece of advice to;-
    Riders: Keep in mind that ur the most vulnerable road users, so it always pays dividends to be a little more cautious of ur surroundings.
    Car drivers: Do be considerate and aware of the little 2-wheelers, and avoid comparing or having ill feelings towards em such as motorcyclists r not paying for the tolls, not queuing up during traffic, lane splitting and so on. Bet u will also do the same due to our road sense.
    Authorities; Day by day i see more n more jeruk guys peddling at traffic lights, dont wat to react till a major accident goes viral.

    This is typical motorbike speed when lane splitting. Do not even know how to see upfront. Not saying the x-trail isnt wrong, but ride slower and anticipate. Something looks remotely not right, slow down. Be a better bike rider.
