    Drivers are tough nuts to crack. In our country, no amount of awareness drive will ever be enough to drive the message to safe driving. Over speeding, drunken driving, distractions to driver, red light jumping, avoiding safety gears like seat belts and helmets, non-adherence to lane driving and overtaking in a wrong manner are some of the major causes. In the case of rail accidents too, we are not far behind. Even though the government has provided infrastructure like railway footover bridge to cross from one platform to another the number of accidents due to run over by trains is scary. In Bombay alone 6,000 odd people are killed every year due to callousness when crossing the railway tracks or for that matter trying to save precious minutes in order to avoid being late. Day before yesterday - early morning around 5 am, a couple (husband, wife and their 15 day old new born child) arrived from Surat in Gujarat at Vasai Road railway station. Instead of getting down on the platform, they got down on the wrong side of the platform to save the crowd on the footover bridge since they were in a hurry to save some precious minutes. As they were trying to climb unsuccessfully on the other platform a speeding express train mowed them and crushed all of them in no time. Silly on their part to have compromised their lives due to carelessness.
