Buying used cars: 5 signs a car has been in an accident

A knight in shining armor is a man who has never had his metal truly tested. Likewise, a pristine looking car is a car that hasn’t been driven much. While the former may be an inspirational phrase, the latter is a sign of a good used car. When shopping for a used car, it is normal to see dings, scratches, or the occasional putty. Small damages are good for bargaining, but a used car with major damage is much better avoided. Whether or not to go on with the purchase is entirely up to you. This en

This year, the Malaysian police force started using the Honda Civic in their fleet of Mobile Patrol Vehicles (MPV). You’ve probab

Serdang police chief says PDRM not issuing compounds against MCO SOP rule breakers yet

You would think that since this is the second round of the Movement Control Order (MCO), Malaysians would know better and adhere to the standard operating procedures (SOP) like the 10 km radius ban.
