Night riders confident they can avoid tragedy by doing exact same thing

JOHOR BARU:  Teenage cyclists representing Johor’s thrill-seeking Mat Lajak community remained confident they could avoid the tragic death that befell their comrades hit by a car in February, if they just commit themselves to doing the exact same thing they did.

“We will never forget our nine friends who needlessly died after a car hit them speeding downhill without lights or safety gear on the usually lonely highway near the Thistle Hotel at 3:30AM, but we can promise it wont ever happen to us,” assured 14-year-old Amir preparing to speed downhill without lights or safety gear on the usually lonely highway near the Thistle Hotel at 3:30AM last Saturday.

“If there are lessons to be learned from February’s tragedy, we’ve no plans to learn them anytime soon!”
