It seems that the case of selfish drivers driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol is a never-ending tale in Malaysia. When will these irresponsible drivers realise that their actions have repercussions either in the loss of another person’s life or property damage that costs thousands of ringgit.

A drunk driver lost control and died after his car lost control and plunged into Sungai Batu near a roundabout at Kepong last night (18 October).
