A guy on TikTok recently raised concerns about the safety of a particular road in Malaysia

George Yusuf, who has been living in Malaysia for two years, shared a video detailing the peculiar layout of a road in Bandar Perda, Penang.

In the video, he describes how the two-lane road's sharp turn makes it nearly impossible for cars to stay in their lanes.

Panning his camera towards the sharp turn, Yusuf captures several cars struggling to stay within their lanes, further proving his point

Tagging Majlis Bandaraya Seberang Perai in his caption, Yusuf urged the state government to do something about it.

"You don't have to study engineering to know that you cannot take a sharp turn when you're driving at a certain speed," he said.

He shared that he has driven on that road at 40km/h and he tried to stay within the lane, but it was uncomfortable. To make matters worse, he said the road only has two lanes.

"The government is endangering the users of the road... If you're driving at 60km/h on this (which is the speed limit in town areas), and you suddenly see a sharp corner, the only way to avoid a crash is if you cut into the [next] lane.

"Then, you might still end up in a crash because there might be another car in that lane or a motorcycle, which may be even worse because the rider might die," he elaborated.

Yusuf continued by expressing his belief that Malaysia has talented engineers and does not lack in that area

"I really want to believe this. But why is this still happening?" he lamented, his voice tinged with frustration.

"My belief is that if there is no one who points out the things that are not working, they will not be fixed and it will stay like this. So, my intention is not just to complain and say 'I'm annoyed by this', my intention is to bring awareness to this issue and hope that it changes in the future," he added.

His video has amassed over 833,000 likes, with many in the comments section agreeing with him
