Be careful of road scammers! 🙅
If you find yourself stranded on the side of the road with your car, please contact your insurance company immediately for assistance.
There is a chance that a random tow truck will suddenly appear and offer their services. Do not accept their offer as you could potentially end up having to pay more than you actually should.
These tow truck scams are sadly a common occurrence on Malaysian roads. They would go as far as holding your car against your will until you pay a ridiculous fee. Click here to read more about these road scams and tips on how to avoid them.
What should I do after a car accident? 💥
The first thing that every driver should after a car accident is to stay calm and avoid engaging in an argument with other driver(s) involved. Next is to document the accident as it could help support evidence to how the accident occurred. You should also make sure to exchange details with the other driver(s).
If there are witnesses of the accident that you are involved, you should consider getting their details as well. Afterwards, you and the other driver should head down to the nearest police station to lodge a police report. Lastly, you should contact your insurance company to notify them of the accident and consult them on what you should do next.
