Accidents can and will happen, regardless of how careful one may be in an attempt to avoid them. And this is especially true when we take to the roads behind the wheel. But it is important to remember that how one chooses to handle such instances of misfortune while driving can also make a huge difference in how they would eventually pan out.
M’sian netizen recounts her encounter with a kind woman after a minor accident
Just a day ago, TikTok user _shuhadamohamad, also known as Ms Shuhada Mohamad, took to sharing dash-cam footage of an accident that she had caused as she was driving. In the video, she explained that she had caused a fender bender by mistake, after her own car failed to stop on time due to the fact that the calipers on her car’s brakes had worn down without her realising it. And like any responsible driver would, Shuhada immediately got out of her vehicle to assess the situation with the driver of the car in-front of her own.
Worried over how the other driver would react after how she had damaged their vehicle in the accident, Shuhada admits that she was nervous when she stepped out of her car.
“At first I thought she wants to curse me.
I got out of my car and immediately said ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry’. Then we checked our cars.” she wrote in her video.
Not knowing what else she could do in that situation, she simply offered to accompany the other driver to the workshop. However, the other driver said that she wasn’t free to head straight for the workshop, and instead asked to trade numbers with Shuhada instead.
But what made the encounter all the more heartwarming was the fact that the other driver, who noticed how panicked Shuhada appeared, proceeded to console and calm her down, telling her that she need not worry over the accident.
“She said ‘no worry, this is just a small matter. Don’t you worry.’
It’s okay. Everyone makes mistakes.'” the other driver said.
Netizens praise the other driver for being calm and understanding
Relieved by her words, Shuhada said that she was thankful to have met the other driver, who remained completely calm despite the fact that she had all the right in the world to be mad. Instead of reacting in anger, she chose instead to forgive her.
The video has since gone viral over social media, with many netizens praising the other driver for keeping her cool throughout the entire ordeal.
“What happen if she came out yelling in a fit of anger, I ask you could she have settled the matter? Nope, not at all. She chose to cooldown, relax, and things just worked out. Salute.”
“Allah SWT granted you with an encounter with a good soul. Truly an unexpected blessing.”
“Ahh, how nice of her! It’s so hard to find drivers who are so nice on the road. Treat others with kindness and InsyaAllah, Allah SWT will bless you in return with the same kindness.”
