Yeah, I just saw that. I don't think it's something which is peculiar to JB. It can happen anywhere. No matter, be careful when you are near cars. These car washes have seats indoors which is where I'm typically waiting. It's just unfortunate for this chap.

RIP.

And why on earth washing car needs to put the engine on and not in neutral gear ?

Beyond me.

Rest in peace.

Rest in peace.

They always drive the car around the car wash area. They need to move the car from the washing area to the vacuuming area etc. It's standard.

The worker just made a very costly blunder.

Ah,
so it's not during the washing, but during the changing area ...

Very clumsy....

Just unfortunate that such things happen. It could happen in Sungapore and anywhere else. Accident happens. That s why it is called accident. Just unfortunate to be involved, thats all. Condolences to his family. Sad Crying or Very sad

I been into JB many times...(don ask me how many....but trust me.....its many many many times). But I have yet to come across a car wash place whereby one needs to sit inside the car to have it washed.....unlike in SG whereby the ones in petrol station, you need to drive thru.

So though I am sadden with this incident, but at the same time, I am very puzzled. WTF is the guy sitting inside....for???

To my frens and bro/sistas .......may common sense prevails......

Seriously, there is no avoidance to the calling once the time is up. This is all fated. Unfortunate but unavoidable.

HI DS, that guy in the car was just driving it from the washing bay after it had been washed so that it could be dried. This is all manual labour. Not like those automated car wash where you just sit in the car and the auto wind blow dry your car and you can drive off after it is dry. You have not been to a car wash in JB before or one in Singapore where it is wash manually???

Car wash in JB is usually around 8 RM.

On another matter, i played at Palm Villa recently, and while I was at the bag drop , I was approached by an Indian guy who offered to polish my car for 100 rm.

Anyone tried the car polish service before? Unlikely to get runned down while golfing , i guess , unless they manage barge the car onto the golf course. Laughing

For 8 RM I'd rather go to the Caltex Macpherson carwash. $4.
Unless you're a JB regulars of course...

ya.. quite cheap la.. $7 for 2 times wash.
the 2nd free wash is a voucher that would expire about 2 weeks later lor.

Basically, just present the voucher and wash free lor.
So, it's $3.50 per wash.
