    Reckless driving, speeding and drink-driving are the root causes of these accidents, involving state vehicles. Do you think this govt will do anything effectively to stop this carnage?

    Many accidents could be avoided if a compulsory road worthiness test is done annually . The lights , breaks , tyres etc., are tested before a certificate is issued . This is the procedure in the USA . The certificate must be pasted on the front screen of the vehicle . It is an offence to drive a vehicle on a public road without such a certificate .

    Bus driver had one too many drinks at the wedding party and he must have been driving like a race car driver.
