Car tyre problem...

For the past two weeks, while i was driving, i notice two cars, back left side tyre not up to par. Different days but same area (what a coincidence).

One was a Kenari or Kancil (guy driving). I saw the car tyre..not enough air. When the car stopped at the traffic light, i roll down my window and informed him. He must have been surprised by it.

A week later, a lady driving a Toyota Unser, her tyre was wobbly...got air but do not know why it was wobbly and she drove quite fast again. I followed her and lucky she was heading to where i was going. And when the car stop...her passenger side, an old lady came out and i told the lady that the car tyre is not good...as driver drove off, she noticed it and thanked me.

Any way hope they get it fixed. I have had tyre problems before and thank God was not involved in any serious accidents.

Now...there have been cases where people temper with car tyres so that they can rob them. As i was thinking of warning the two cars above, i was also thinking whether they think i am going to rob them or not. But safety is number 1 priorty. So i just went ahead to warn them.

My advice is, if you ever find ur self in this situation, please drive to the side after some one had 'warn/inform' you and do not get out of the car. Call ur family or friends and tell them where u r and that some one had warn you abt the tyre. Make sure door is locked and wait until ur family or friends come to help/check with you.

Do not straight away stop car and get out....never know if some one had disturb the tyre. And if possible remember the car number or motorbike number of the person who gave out the... 'warn/inform' about the tyre.

that's very nice of you to inform them :-) a lot of people would have drove on without doing anything...

Nightwing said...

Hi Sting,

U probably rite.

I think it was also the opportunity that was given..that i manage to inform them.

Hey NightWing,

Yeah...Thank God you not predator out to rob them or something...

As for car tyre, I find if your tyre not enough air, your steering-wheel a bit tighter one...

Dunno if my imagination or not...=)

wing,
Macam2 boleh jadi in Malaysia right now... The idea that people get just to rob you... Takut lah...

Nightwing said...

Hi Daphne,

U r rite on the tyre thingy...but sometimes people (myself included) may not realise it while driving.

Especially if it is the back tyre.

Nightwing said...

Hi Cat,

Ya...nowadays...they will think of anything to rob people.

One just have to be on the alert.

Sue said...

Nightwing said...

Hi Nightwing, good for you, young man. Totally agree with you re the security part of it.
Here its the long 52' or 60 footer trucks or tractor trailers, their wheel comes off at 120Km on our highways and slam into cars.
By coincidence I just changed my Lincoln's left front wheel bearing, tire wobbly.
Keep up the good work Nightwing. Stay cool, my man, UL.

Helo Uncle Lee,

Thank you for the kind words.

Big trucks sure harder to know if they have tyre problems. 120km..phew...sure is fast and dangerous.

U take care now...cheers.
