Kota Kinabalu: Sepanggar residents on Friday called for safety precautions to be taken following frequent accidents at the Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park roundabout along Jalan Sepanggar. The latest incident which took place at the roundabout claimed the life of a 32-year-old Malaysia Airlines Berhad staff last Sunday.

The man was riding home on his motorcycle when he lost control of the superbike which crashed into the side of the roundabout at about 10.30pm.

A resident, Musri Tabin, said accidents have frequently taken place at the roundabout which is prone to mishaps especially during the rainy season when puddles of water would appear on the road surface.

"We hope the relevant authorities would also look into placing more warning signs and putting up more lights in the area," he said.

He also hoped the sides of the roundabout would be raised, since the current design was too low.

"Motorists would often get confused and think that it is a straight route, when in fact there is a roundabout," he said.
