A worldwide examine by UK-based monetary service comparability platform Confused.com has revealed that Malaysia is among the many most disturbing international locations to drive a automobile in, legitimizing the various grouses many could at the moment have about being drivers on Malaysian roads.

The examine took under consideration various components to give you a last weighted rating out of 100, particularly issues comparable to highway high quality, variety of velocity cameras, variety of deadly accidents, and the variety of automobiles per kilometer of highway.
