Its not only the fault of the driver its the boys parents fault too.. How can they let the kid run on the main road. Government should bring rules for this too. Rules not only for kids even the adults... Myself as a driver I really get problems while driving as people cross the road all of a sudden if it is yellow cord cross its a different story. They should bring rules for this.. via DM Android App
