Traffic chaos in USJ Taipan
I write with disgust over the lack of control or co-ordination between the police and Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) in USJ.
I live in USJ 8 and have to come to terms with the lack of discipline among motorists in USJ.
People park their cars indiscriminately and block traffic. The Taipan area is a madhouse in the afternoon and at dinnertime.
I have also encountered a road bully in Taipan.
The police should go around USJ Taipan during the peak times and summon those who park wherever they liked.
I was driving out of Goodyear Court 5 when this Honda CRV suddenly reversed straight into my path. I honked and looked at him.
He began shouting but I couldnít hear as my windows were up.
As I slowly eased out of that area, the man followed me and then tried to run me off the road.
I pretended not to know and carried on driving. At one point he was in front of me and suddenly stopped, wound down his window and waved his baseball bat. I passed him on his right.
He sped ahead of me to the traffic lights and got down from his vehicle. I stopped about three cars away as I didnít want to risk becoming his victim. He was still shouting and screaming all this while.
I hope reading this makes us think about what sort of world we live in.
