One of the many factors why road accidents happen in our country is mostly caused by a negligent driver who was attempting an unsafe lane change.
Recently, a dashcam recording displaying a footage of a family with a child on a motorcycle crashing into a car last weekend made its rounds on social media. The dashcam footage shows the motorcycle crashing into a Mazda after the SUV had an emergency brake when a Proton Wira suddenly changed its lanes.

The clip was recorded on the dashcam of one of the vehicles behind them. The Proton Wira was evidently seen changing its left lane abruptly, resulting in an accident between the other vehicles on the road. The Proton Wira driver on the other hand was seen simply driving away from the scene.
The video that was uploaded on social media had garnered reactions from the public with many commenting their dissatisfaction at the reckless behaviour of the Proton Wira driver. Many also advised the road user, especially motorcyclists to practice safe driving distances in order to avoid accidents caused by a sudden brake of the vehicle in front.
Netizens also praised the Mazda driver for being attentive towards the family and checking their condition instead of prioritising their car that was probably damaged by the crash. Aside from that, there are also netizens who took the opportunity to call on the public to install a dashcam system in their vehicles, as it can serve as an evidence in case such an accident occurred in the future.
