Sexual predators lurk everywhere, regardless of time and place. In recent times, there have been numerous accounts of sexual harassment incidents happening here and there, with most of the victims being ladies. Who would have thought that they will get harassed while on the road too?
Recently, Twitter page Cringe Malaysian uploaded a screenshot of comments left posted by a couple of male netizens on FB. As seen in the snapshot, the Facebook user named Jafrizal M. Saleh appeared to share some “positive words of encouragement” for his fellow truck driver pals.

Jafrizal had uploaded a photo of a female driver’s lap. It appears that the photo was taken by him from the inside of his truck. He wrote, “Don’t get stressed out whenever you are stuck in traffic jam. You must be brave and strong-hearted. My eyes have been blessed, so I need to share this.” Another commenter, Ujang Millenium, then responded, “Enjoying the view,” to which the netizen replied, “The advantage of sitting at a higher place.”
“These ‘pilot darat’ (drivers) can f**ck off. This kind of behaviour is so disgusting!” the admin of Cringe Malaysian’s Twitter page remarked in the post. As expected, a lot of local netizens were left infuriated after seeing the viral post. Many of them expressed their disgust with the dirty comments left by the FB users.
At the time of writing (Thursday, 30th June), the tweet has garnered up to 5,000 retweets on social media. With that, we would also like to advise the public – especially women – to be more alert of their surroundings. Stay protected, girls!
