In Sarawak particularly along the Bakun-Bintulu road seeing a lorry with overloaded cargo like this is pretty common.
Here they are known as ‘timber terrorists’ – terrorizing other road users who dare to get into their way.
In many cases they were not legally allowed on this road and they have known to cause fatal accidents.
Locals have made several complaints including in the national media about these truck driver antics. But to no avail.
In this part of the world jungle law reign supreme, money talks.
Connection with those higher up in the society the order of the day.
Thank An Agat.
