    Truck drivers and bus drivers are overly careless always... This may be due to work related pressures or attitude.... This aspect of driving is highly under regulated in our nation... Only way to deter rash driving of commercial vehicles is life ban from driving if convicted of causing death due to own fault... RIP to the departed soul...
