    way too many inexperienced drivers causing accidents and deaths on our roads.

    Some of these drivers are not fit to drive even a bullock carts but they are behind driver's seat and causing all havoc in the country and the authorities are deaf and blind. Innocent people are getting killed daily

    altogether 7 people on board, based on the report. Obviously the vehicle would have been difficult to control
