No matter what happens on the road, we must keep our road rage in check whenever we’re driving. This is because when we’re riled up, our judgement will be clouded and we might cause more problems for everyone involved, including ourselves.

A few days ago, the driver of a blue Proton Wira got out of his car and proceeded to hit a cyclist with a metal rod at the Jalan Seri Manjung – Segari traffic lights.

The surprised cyclist didn’t have enough time to escape the blows and was left wondering what happened.

According to Harian Metro, the incident was captured on a dashcam of another vehicle and it took place on 13 March 2022.

Manjung police chief assistant commissioner Nor Omar Sappi said the police have managed to identify the suspect.

The police tracked down the owner of the vehicle, a 50-year-old man from Ayer Tawar, Manjung, who lent his friend, the suspect, his Proton Wira.

Harian Metro reported that the 34-year-old suspect from Batu Gajah has given his statement at the police station.

Nor Omar explained that the incident stemmed from a misunderstanding.

The suspect was about to make a left turn to get to AEON Mall Seri Manjung but mistakenly thought that the cyclist, who’s believed to be a foreign worker, next to him was going to hit the car.

The suspect claimed that the cyclist scolded and challenged him so he hit him with the metal rod.

The case is investigated under Section 323 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt.

The victim has yet to lodge a police report and has not been identified. However, Kosmo reported that a woman who’s believed to have witnessed the incident lodged a report around 10am yesterday, 22 March.

Anyone who has information about the case should contact the investigating officer Inspector Irsyadiman Allmui at 011-17836233.
