Hundreds of metal bolts along Jalan Rasah in Seremban
DANGER lurks especially for motorcyclists if they are not careful while travelling on Jalan Rasah, Seremban.
One can find hundreds of metal bolts sticking out 2cm off a 20m stretch leading towards town just after the end of the flyover.
Motorcyclists who ride on these bolts could lose their balance and end up with serious injuries.
According to a motorist, who only wants to be known as Ashraf, he once had a miraculous escape while trying to avoid a speeding car coming down from the flyover.
“I had a bumpy ride when I was pushed on the metal bolts. However, I ended up with a punctured back tyre.
“That was a week ago and I am surprised the authorities have not removed them. It is definitely not safe,’’ said Ashraf from Mambau.
The bolts once held flexible poles but over time they were knocked down by speeding vehicles or vandalised and now the metals are exposed.
Motorist Param Kutty said the road had been like that for the past one month and the authorities should act before a nasty accident happened.
