Careless Perodua Axia Owner Drives Away With Petrol Nozzle Still Stuck To His Car

Did the petrol station not notice? Also why didn’t the Axia driver notice this?

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, it’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of daily tasks and forget the simplest of things. However, some oversights can have more dire consequences than others. Take, for instance, the recent incident at a local petrol station where a driver drove off with the petrol nozzle still attached to his Perodua Axia. Let’s see what happened here.


What is truly perplexing is that neither the driver nor the petrol station staff seemed to notice. As the driver hastily manoeuvred his Perodua Axia away from the pump, the nozzle, still securely latched onto the fuel tank, was yanked off with him as his car drove off. One can only wonder why nobody tried to stop this if there was anyone present.

Moreover, the consequences of this careless act were not immediate. This is evident from the fact that the driver, quite oblivious to the fact that there was a whole petrol nozzle stuck to the side of his car, was merrily driving along and was only made aware of his current situation after a motorcyclist let him know what was going on.

Aside from the immediate safety concerns, the financial implications of such a mishap are significant. The petrol station would undoubtedly face hefty repair costs for the damaged equipment while the Perodua Axia owner likely suffered damage, both to the fuel tank and possibly to the surrounding bodywork. 


On top of that, beyond the financial ramifications, this incident should serve as a chilling lesson that so many Malaysians and even people in general are very careless and could potentially be a danger to everyone around them. Things like this can easily be avoided with just a little mindfulness so one hopes it does not happen again anytime soon.

In an era where distractions abound and multitasking has become the norm, it’s all too easy to overlook the small details that can have significant consequences. However, incidents like this should remind us that no matter how busy we get, we should always still be extra mindful of our surroundings.


Well, if you, our valued readers, take anything away from this, it should be to always be careful no matter where you are and to always be mindful of your surroundings, not only for yourself, but for the sake of everyone around you too. So let’s all take steps to stop being on “autopilot” from now on.
