Karawang, IO – Words can’t describe the feeling of longing, except for meeting the loved ones back at home. Maybe that’s how most people feel when Eid is approaching.

As Eid 2022 is just a few days away, the overland route remains preferred by most exodus travelers. However, among the many modes of transportation, motorbikes are still the favorite.

Even though, traveling long distances by motorbike is quite risky. Motorcyclists account for the highest number of traffic accident victims during the pre- and post-Eid return traffic.

Therefore, to minimize accidents, travelers are advised not to force themselves to continue their journey when they are tired or sleepy. They can take advantage of rest palces such as mosques, gas stations or food stalls along the route. (dra)
