Road Accidents

motor vehicles provide us with very convenient means of transport. However we have lost our beloved ones through road accidents. Its high time strict measures were taken to reduce the number of accidents. There are several causes of road accidents namely overs peeding, dangerous over taking, driving un road worthy vehicles careless driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and selfishness. in addition, both the pedestrians and drivers do not observe the traffic rules, the poor state of roads in our country cannot be left out as one of the causes of road accidents. We accept the fact that accidents can occur at any time and any place but road accidents can be minimized in order to avoid fatal or serious injuries. The government should ensure that trains a discipline police force staff in order to minimize public embarrasment.
