Author's comment:
I personally think that the charge of that old lady was unfair. C'mon man! she was trying to get out of the car and the motorcyclist suddenly ram through the door. Who ask the motorcyclist to go so near the car? This is so unfair. If I were the judge, I will fine the motorcyclist for being a reckless driver because he is going through the left side of the stopping car and causing accident. This accident might give a shock to the old lady by thinking it is a robbery or something...

Bottom line... Something wrong with Malaysian Judge.
