    It's not the intention.... it's not knowing and following the traffic rules..... that's the fact about driving in India.

    Now a days accidents have become very common. It seems the society & the authority takes it for granted, not doing anything to reduce accidents. We have forgotten that each life is valuableone. Daily accidents & loss of life should be reduced. We don't feel good hearing the news of accidents & loss of life. So give first preference to avoid accidents as we give importance for Corona pandemic.

    what more can be expected in a third world country like India? these are all part and parcel of life when we are citizens living in countries where corruption is the highest and democracy is only for namesake. Take good care of yourself and be safe as far as possible. Rest leave it to God

    Don't blame authorities for everything.....our roads and authorities been there for decades. It is drivers and two, three wheelers riders are the ones to be blamed for all the accidents and deaths. If one rides and drives like a maniac then these type of accidental deaths are bound to happen. I have seen two wheelers riders doing all kinds of acrobatics while on the move that too on busy highways. Some of them always ride only on the center of the right lane no matter comes what even ladies at 40Kmph. So the guy driving behind driving at high speed will knock down one in the front then all finished....only RIP.

    Pick up truck mini goods vehicle drivers are worst drivers, even double worse than tipper truck drivers.

    This is the second such report involving pick-up truck and 2-wheeler. I have also observed that pickup truck drivers are aggressive especially when the truck is empty. They have direct view of the road immediate to the driver seat and hence they tend to take more risk in anticipation of better view and accuracy of maneuver. However, wherever they fail, it can have disastrous results as this and earlier one.
